My dear friend,I don't know I have audacity to advice you but for love
of god I want to do that.

Well, as you have 5yr experience and you are bored to hack development works,you should leave development field as you have no interest left but keep it up your development skills by doing short projects.

Testing, huh? why not penetration testing along software testing,you
can also do security stuffs.

For that you can do certs such as Cissp,CEH,CPTS,six sigma black belt,ITIL manager so that you can increase inner instinct and salary.

best regards,
omi

Romia,

I can't speak to questions 2 or 3, as I'm in the US, but as to question 1, if moving into test automation is what appeals to you, then it's good to make the move!

Being passionate about what you're doing is something that will make you want to succeed, learn more, and improve your skills. At least in my experience.

Good test automation specialists can be a true blessing, and in my experience working with testers of all sorts, a good solid foundation in programming is essential.
