Don't worry, your favorite resident bug scientist is still going to be playing with bugs and being a scientist.
My wife, however, is looking for a career change and is incredibly interested in this program or one like it: https://msmis.eller.arizona.edu/masters-programs/azsecure-cybersecurity-fellowship-program
However, while she has a large amount of experience in running and managing databases (she was a database manager for a museum, NPR, and now for Department of Child Safety), all of her work in this area was on the user side. That is, inputting data and actually using the databases after they've been constructed, so she doesn't know a lot of programming.
The requirements for the program here, specifically, are as follows
Before joining our program, students should have experience in computer and Web programming. Students should have knowledge and experience with (1) Java and (2) JSP and Servlets, PHP or .NET/J2EE. Knowledge of database connectivity via ODBC or JDBC is also recommended.
Now, I was able to recommend Code Academy, at least, for learning Java and PHP, but I don't know enough about the other requirements to make specific suggestions about where she could go to learn it on her own. Any suggestions here, from someone who is more of a frog rammer, or who maybe works in Cybersecurity?
