I'm looking at a career change. I have some IT and coding experience, but nothing "official". I've been in financial planning for 8 years, so my resume doesn't lend itself much to the IT/developer industry. I'm 30 with a family, so a big income hit is not really going to work, but I know if I don't get some experience/training under my belt, that will likely happen. My question is this - what should I focus on teaching myself or getting training in? Should I get some MS certs or other certs? Should I learn Java, C++? I figured people in the industry would have a good idea about what's the most important thing to focus on at this stage or for the next few years. Thanks in advance for any input.
