If I'm interested in exploring a new area in my company, say I want to do back end development and I'm currently an SRE, but I don't have any real experience in backend development, do you have some suggestions on how I can explore this and possibly switch over to being a backend engineer?
Like, if I wanted to take on new tasks in backend, for instance - how would I go about identifying opportunities and/or tasks in that area if I don't have such tasks in my current team?
I'm currently working as an SRE (Site Reliability Engineer). I was, and am still interested in being a Software Engineer.
I am interested in switching in the future to a normal software engineering role, but want to make the most of my current situation since I recently joined the company (late-stage startup).
What do you think would be some good skills, exposure, things I could learn as an SRE that would be useful to a Software Engineer?
