How to break into Aerospace

I am currently 2.5 yrs into my career as a SWE with a large tax firm building web apps.Β 

My passion is with aerospace, and my goal is to wrote flight software. Ideally with a private space org or NASA.Β 

Given that web development is quite different from writting flight software (in terms of tech stack, fault tolerance, etc), how would you reccommend I prepare myself to break in?

Any tips/suggestions for projects, open source and DIY, or general wisdom would be appreciated. The more specific the better!

Thanks, Cheers. Β

Have you looked at any opensource flight controllers? There are a few out there.
