Do the skills of a software developer transfer well into working in computer security or white hat hacking?

I am conflicted. I want to become a software developer but I am also interested in the networking side of things… Is software development and network security 2 whole different beasts? If they are, could learning both become a whole “jack of all trades master of none” situation? Should I specialize or could I be a software Dev with a "hacking" hobby.
