Nočnica I'm a non-binary aspiring dev who's worked as IT support for the past 8 years and not particularly enjoyed it. I'm not out at work due to an explicitly queerphobic boss but I don't have a strong educational background so I feel stuck in the job because the money is decent (but not developer money) and I need health insurance for my own mental health reasons. Thanks for this talk, all the advice was solid and it felt good to see that it's a career transition that's feasible. I'd love to connect more if you wouldn't mind! I followed you on Twitter, I'm @whatnotery !
