Interesting. I'm currently working on a project where two of the
team (both women :-) studied as Librarians but became so interested
in the computing side that after finishing the course they signed
up for a 1 yeear Masters IT course and ae now full time
software engineers... Albeit both primarily focussed on
Business Analysis type roles, but both capable of whipping
up a database or programmng a web app with no problem.
The fact that the IT industry pays better helped too
of course! :-)
Still looking for the article BTW.
