I'm totally new to the world of IT. I'm a chartered accountant with some experience in writing Excel based code in VBA to help me work around the limitations of existing software. I've been thinking recently about trying to retrain as a programmer and have a complete career change, as I really enjoy writing code. I'd ideally like to work with financial software as I have quite an extensive understanding of what the end user would be likely to need. (Possibly am just having an early mid life crisis - not sure yet!)
Does anyone have any advice to offer as to how this might be possible and whether it's a crazy thing to try and do...?
