Mid-career change law to tech

I was happily working in the law industry for over a decade, but since the pandemic, I have a drastic shift in mentality. I have never thought once about work life balance nor a career change in the time that I’m in my law firm.

But now, I’m ready for a change. Just looking to see if anyone had similar experiences?

  1. How did mid career changers get started in the field they are changing too/
  2. If tech, where should I go to learn and what should i learn?
  3. I know there’s going to be a drastic change in terms of compensation, but what do people usually give for fresh folks in tech?
