I have more than 10 years of experience in VB6.0 and classic ASP with SQL Server as database.
Now as .NET has become default requirement for any kind of job in MS technology, can you please suggest me which technology should I start learning so that I can put my career on track with current trends.
I know its too late to START but at some time I will have to start learning it.
Advice on Friday, July 19, 2013 :
10 yrs of exp in IT is very good milestone but also some kind of challenge as it can be a stage where the decision taken at this juncture would have longer lasting impact on further career. Hence the decisions need to be informed ones and also taken carefully with due dilligence.
They say, it is never too late to start anything and yes you would want to learn the current technologies i.e. .NET. Given your rich
experience the learning would be pretty straightforward and quick.
ASP.NET MVC is very much talked about and also cloud technologies i.e. Windows Azure can give that needed extra edge to you. Simultaneously you would like to keep an eye on Windows 8 and also mobile technologies.
Essentially, one needs to be abreast of current trends and investing time in being aware of such trends and getting hang of it, can be hugely beneficial for one's professional career.
Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for your advice. I would like to know, can I start to learn ASP.NET MVC without any prior knowledge in .NET? Or any pre requisite is there
Vishwas's Advice on Sunday, July 21, 2013 :
Knowing of .NET framework in general is going to be helpful before jumping into ASP.NET or WCF or Windows etc as this is the foundation of all these specifics. Knowledge of ASP.NET is first step towards ASP.NET MVC and also the knowledge of MVC pattern could accelerate such leanings.
