I have 8 years of experience in ASP.net and SQLSERVER.as i am not so comfortable with planning and managing people i think aiming a projectmanager is difficult to me, as i go through some queries in this advice panel there is alternate career growth as Techinal Architect, until now i thought Projectmanager includes everthing, thanks to dotnetfunda..so i want to become the Techinal Architect.
please advice me how to plan and what are the things to learn to reach my goal.
i don't have any experince in WPF,WCF,silverlight and sharepoint.
my experience involves ASP.NET with vb.net and some portion with c#,windows service,webservice,infragistics
i can say i am more comfrotable with ASP.net using VB.net
i unable to decide the path to move either i go WPF..WCF... or completly move to sharepoint.
or i should know all .
please advice me.
Kapil's Advice on Friday, March 30, 2012 :
To grow as technical architect you need to learn everything. It is not either or Or situation.
So to start becoming the Architect, grow at a level start thinking in terms of requirement gathering, use cases, designs, deployment of the system , performance aspects, caching strategies, best practices ...
Stop worrying about whether to go with this product or that product. It is not product that we work for we work to solve customer problem and whichever product solves it learn it , evaluate it and implement.
