There are a lot of bootcamps out there that will help you get your foot in the door, particularly when it comes to web/dev. If you want a few more tools in your toolbox, bootcamps are the perfect thing for you.

Reach out to them, explain your background and your career desires. They will be able to guide you to the right path.
