Not sure if I have chosen correct group, apologies in advance. My story short. I have studied CS, got bachelor degree, got job in marketing department where I was developing websites with the use of PHP, JS, CSS no use of frameworks, all vanilla for one year.
Then emigrated got a job where I needed to learn ASP.NET that lasted 6 months, then got another job where I had to learn ColdFusion as a main language and that lasted for 2 years. Then life happened and I was out of job, I have convinced myself that if I push myself to get PHP Zend Certification that would help me land new role in PHP.
I selfstudied, pass the certification but at that point my self-esteem was so low I didn't believe I could convince anyone that I would be good employee (on a personal level let's say traumatic stuff happened and I felt low for very longtime). That was round 10 years ago.
I loved working with PHP, I love this language I know quite well Laravel and VUE (I would love to work with those frameworks). I self-study. I would love to work full time as a web developer again, frontend is not something I love but if needed I can do but backend is my favouriteenvironment.
But because of the gap I have - 10 years - things probably moved on, and I have no idea how to even be relevant on the job market, what can I do to be considered for the job. I feel like I'm starting from zero, I give myself 6 months to transfer to IT field (as for the last 10 years I wasn't working in IT). Please help, advice. Thank you.
