Is there a way to force Google Chrome to remember passwords for sites that have autocomplete turned off?
I am a programmer, but ideally, I'd like a method that I could help regular users implement, too.

use the autocomplete=on extension. it changes 'autocomplete=off' to 'autocomplete=on' in web pages, so your passwords will be remembered.
This is not secure at all, of course, if anyone you don't trust may open your browser; they can click to edit this and see your login info.
But it's not much worse than having the browser remember your passwords if it doesn't use a master password to encrypt them; some digging around in the menus will let you view those. And anyway, you shouldn't let people you don't trust use your computer.
If you have a Password Manager extension installed, Chrome disables this internal feature if it detects such a Password Manager. Temporarily disabling the extension will allow you to use the built in mechanism.
Older answers which are now obsolete:
Chrome has native support for it: If you enable
then you can right click on the password field and instruct the browser to store it.
It's now been renamed to
chrome://flags/#PasswordForceSaving (Chrome 65 and possibly some earlier versions)
I often do the following in Firefox/Firebug:
autocomplete="off"(usually on the form tag)
I can't find a way to delete attributes with Chrome's Developer Tools, but you can change it to
autocomplete="on" or change the attribute name to e.g. "width".
Here is a bookmarklet that removed the autocomplete. Create a new bookmark on your toolbar and save this long line as the url:
Instead of relying on the webpage to support password saving, you can instead overwrite the whole page with an HTML form that is guaranteed to work:
Click on the "Console" tab
document.getElementsByTagName("body").innerHTML='<form action=# method=post><input name=identifier><input type=password name=password><input type=submit></form>'
Important: Close the developer panel by pressing Ctrl+Shift+I again; otherwise your browser won't display the password save dialog.
Enter the username and password you want your browser to save, then click "Submit".
Your browser should then confirm if you would like to 'remember' these credentials.
For some websites, Firefox will let you save the password where Chrome will not. So you can save the password in Firefox, and import it into Chrome.
These instructions are based on Chrome version 62.

From Stable Channel Update:
Chrome will now offer to remember and fill password fields in the presence of autocomplete=off.
This feature has been implemented in the Google Chrome 34.0.1847.116 Stable channel for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
You can use the Roboform Chrome extension.
