You didn't ask for advice, but it's worth keeping in mind that your experience outside of programming is just as valuable to the right company as it would be if you hadn't had a career detour. You might want to quantify the sorts of things you've worked on, but the ability to walk into an interview and show that you understand the "big picture" of how features are going to land with users (or how to find out) on top of being able to do the literal work is a big deal.
