I've been thinking about this for a couple of years (you know when you're bored with your current job and routine) but haven't decided anything.
I'd like to start a new career in software development instead of my current niche - marketing. Has anyone tried the same? Was it too difficult? From the range of technologies I'm interested in front-end, so in need of the programming languages to start with (I'm accustomed a little bit to java and that's all).
Just let me know that it's not completely insane for a marketer to touch the development world.
I know that the very new niche may be hard to dive into at the very beginning, however, any tips from those who tried this already, will be very helpful.
