30 is not old. If you spend your 20s in academia, bachelor's, master's, maybe PHD, you're almost 30 when you start working.

We hired folks who transferred from other occupations to development. It's not unlike other areas; you have to learn the basics on your own.

It may take a year, depending on your available time, to educate yourself to a level where you can get an internship or junior-position.

Once you have a foot in the door, it gets simpler. You can learn and get experience on the job from now on.
