Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

About 30 years ago I was in a similar situation. I worked second shift so I was basically the only one in the department. I talked to my boss and asked if I could help any of the programming staff with debugging problems or coding small apps in my downtime when our long nightly jobs were running. This could help the programmers out when I found the issues and allowed them to work on other things when they came in the next day. This way is was like getting 2 employees for the price of one. That got me enough hands on experience to forward my career

    Basically coding/programming skill depends on industry type or nature of a company. You did not reveal your academic/professional qualifications. However as you written for interesting in coding, you can go for Java/SAP ABAP. Also .NET is there, where you can find VB.NET or C# for coding. Also you can ask your boss, if there is a code based project/development.

    The best thing you can do is to learn on your own, in your own time...or, if you have downtime with all the automation at work, then perhaps there. The organization Pluralsight has a lot of good training resources for software development. YouTube is good as well. Check out SearchSoftwareQuality.com as well...tons of development/QA resources there. Good luck!
