I have been a Web Developer in London since I graduated in 2012. My skills reside mainly in the Microsoft stack (MSSQL, .NET, C#, MVC and all the front-end stuff).
I have always been very interested and passionate about space associated technologies and engineering. I believe we are living in a very interesting time for space technology and the future is very exciting. I would love to be part of this and if I could become a software developer in the space industry, frankly it would be a dream come true.
My question is, is this an achievable transition?
I have had a bit of a look around at relevant jobs and similar questions to mine and have found that languages such as C, C++, Python and MatLab are used widely in the industry. I do not have much experience with these other than a couple of modules of C that I did at university. I've already started to look into Python online and I'm enjoying it so far!
I wouldn't expect to be able to jump straight into an experienced software development role straight away so I'm also wondering if there is a good way to gain appropriate experience which would help me in my quest to work in the space industry? (i.e. jobs I could aim for as a middle-ground, courses etc).
