I suggest reading the post above. It's a thread about how successful coders started out. Almost everyone who responded stated they started in an un-related position.
I think in this industry, especially in todayâ€™s market, that this is how you enter the field.
If you have such a position I would count it a blessing; Learn everything you can, ask lots of questions, and be proactive. By proving that you are smart, reliable, and accurate you will earn more coding duties.
Good luck to you and your coding future!
