I just recently landed my first job as .NET developer. I have never been a programmer professionally but have worked in IT for the past 6 years. I worked up from help desk to supervising a cyber security team. I have a lot of experience writing PowerShell scripts that automate tasks, do remote administration, etc. which helped when it came to my interview. I'm lucky the company that hired me really took a liking to me even with my severe lack of experience when it comes to programming. They are giving me an opportunity to learn on the job which I am grateful for!

Nice story. PowerShell automation at its best, landing you jobs you never expected. :D
