Hi @teresaman awesome of you for providing these resources. I tried to join the talent pool but the LinkedIn url does not get accepted for me to proceed. Would be great if you could help out or perhaps know what I might be doing wrong

Hi @daryllast thanks for sharing your experience on here. I would suggest to start networking on Linkedin and other online communities so you can start to get to know more people. Also, are you already applying for junior dev roles? There are apprenticeships and internships at some companies that you can apply for, that can lead to FT dev roles. Even though you are currently working FT, perhaps you can start carving out time to apply for dev roles if you haven't yet. There's also roles like Customer Success and Implementations that's a great way to get into a company and then move into dev roles internally or to a new company, but with experience in the tech space already.
