Having not been a developer your entire career may bring something good to the party.
But breaking in may be tough.
I was lucky. When 32, I was hoovered up (like thousands of others) by DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation). They relocated me from Florida to Marlboro MA, to get a rookie documentor. (Can you imagine?) It was easy, over time, to show that I should be a developer.
Maybe best to try an oblique path, through, say, documentation, testing, or customer service.
