Hi guys,

I've been working as Software Testing Engineer (QA) for almost 1.4 years now. I want to move to development though. I find development much more interesting. I plan on giving the OCP exam, improve my problem solving skills and learn spring boot. For spring boot I've enrolled myself to a course on udemy.
I can spare around 6-7 hours daily to work on these stuff for the  next 6 months. I'll start looking for job in March or April. Any advice on what more I could or should learn or any advice in general?

Thanks!

Anas,
Write lots of code while you are studying and put it on github. You are going to need something to show employers to show you can code.


Also, I recommend learning JUnit and Selenium. That way you can show your test skills as you transition roles.
 
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
