That's how I started working in software. My prior work was in financial analytics but I'd been spending lots of time working on learning about software development and building side projects.
I'd decided that I wanted to quit about a year before I did, but knew I wanted to spend some time off working on my own stuff and just unwinding. After a few months I put out some feelers/applications and ended up joining my current job. Quitting without a job lined up was risky but one of the best professional decisions I've made.
