So my general question is if I would enjoy doing this(programming in java) and would be able to learn basic skill in reasonable time, would this be a good idea? Is it possible to learn this relatively quickly to get entry-level job?(entry-lvl jobs in programming > jobs i had recently)
So we are same age and i switched into this career 3 years ago.

-Whats reasonable amount of time for you? There are many avenues of approaching this. you can start taking online or city college courses and see how it goes. What i can tell you is that most companies won't take you with little exprience, you need to have something. even an online portfolio helps.

-You have to start to know.
