"Maybe being a technical administrator is a good stepping stone into a developer role, maybe working in a non-technical team in a software development company is a way to transition." Currently trying this trick in a Software Company. I am hired as a customer service executive and keeping my fingers crossed. Let's see how it goes. However there is no denying that you're truly an inspiration! I loved every bit of your post.
Sounds like you’re on your way to your goal, awesome stuff :)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
