There are some times when we really need to make a career transition and this can be a very difficult thing to do.
I've talked about transitioning from QA to Software Development but I've never dug into talking about the transition from SysAdmin to Software Development,
First of all, a SysAdmin is is a person who is responsible for the upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of computer systems; especially multi-user computers, such as servers. The system administrator seeks to ensure that the uptime, performance, resources, and security of the computers he or she manages meet the needs of the users, without exceeding the budget.
To meet these needs, a system administrator may acquire, install, or upgrade computer components and software; provide routine automation; maintain security policies; troubleshoot; train or supervise staff; or offer technical support for projects.
So, as you can see, a lot can be learned from those people wanting to transition.
