From Software Engineer to Quantitative Analyst/Trader/Finance role

What would be the most logical way for a Software Engineer to become a Trader or Quantitative Analyst, or in general improve his investment/trading skills, but also keep his IT skills up-to-date (just in case the move to a career in Finance doesn't work out)?
Do you know anybody who has made such a jump?

But overall, it seems like you want to sit on two chair. Pick one and make a bet.

As for skills, they won't go away, maybe they will require a month or so refreshing after a few years break, but this you will have, should you become unemployed in the worst case.
