How to go into the field of UX from QA?

Hello! Guys please help with advice and maybe a roadmap.
Doing QA for 3 years and it so happened that specialized in frontend. Worked as You know with designers and frontend developers. Often have to test the UI/UX. I decided to go into UX design, but the scope is new so it's hard to understand where to begin.

Help advice, book, could someone also took the path from QA to UX? What pitfalls can occur in the way?
Thank you!

There's no "sphere UX". This is a completely virtual deyatelnosti that exists only in articles written unemployed copywriters. The exception is the mega - corporations that can afford to hire a few bums.

In the real world this work is done by designers, pretender, fullstate anyone who has any kind of head on his shoulders.

Separate line UX only exists in the wet dreams of lazy designers who dream that will only move the grey squares and designing architecture in isolation from actual design. So, of course, does not happen. Rather, attempts were made some time ago to do this, but the result of the work was absolutely meaningless. In the end, most companies went back to the usual way of universal designers.

In a full-fledged UX teams-Ohm do everything. Increasingly responsible product Manager and designer, but any team member can offer their solution of an Ustasa. And given that we as designers almost do not know how to code then a cool front-end things come including from development. The main thing — not to admit here is a typical PM-s, which in word draw three rectangles with the text "texttexttext" and will drown in your "UX".

So forget. Either you are a full-stack designer, or QA.

Um, well not quite agree with previous speakers, because still there are UX designers who paint exclusively prototypes, design of complex systems (for internal use usually) think through the logic of the interface and PR ( for example). Well, courses and relevant literature.

For a start I would advise to walk around the job sites and see the number of jobs and average salary. If a lot of vacancies and offer good money, it makes sense to continue to think in this direction. A lot of literature search engines to help You.
