Default I Quit my Flag Carrier to be a programmer

Hello Guys,

i've been flying as a first officer in my Country's Flag Carrier Airline " Egyptair " for 8 years, 4800 flying hours on the B738, until i decided i'm fed-up , self learned mobile app development ( if anyone need information about this i will be glad to help ) and last August i quit my job and moved to Poland to be with my Polish Wife, but now, i can't get a job in the programming field, and its really difficult to get freelancing gigs ! , so now i've been thinking, shall i go back to flying in a well paying charter in egypt and be away from my family ( just for couple of years to save money ) , or shall i stay and keep trying !, i would appreciate your opinions thou !

What did you know about the job market in Mobile App Development before deciding to switch careers and move to Poland?

Just curious because it sounds as you leapt without looking
