sysadmin -> python programmer

P: n/a

I've been a sysadmin for about 13 years, but I'm realizing that my
favorite part of being a sysadmin are those moments where there's a reason
to write some code - preferably in python.

What might one do to make the transition from sysadmin to python
programmer, aside from the basics like coming up with a python heavy
resume and putting some python projects on the web?

Thanks!

Well not a programmer, but I learned that it works in every line of work:
'When you're capable to get from a cause and need to a solution, then
whatever you do would be fruitful.'

Find a Python shop that's looking for a sysadmin, of course.
