I have around 4 years of exp in classic ASP and now I am looking to learn any new technologies like .net3.5, sharepoint, datwarehousing tools, etc., for my career improvement.

Some of my friends told .net3.5 or sharepoint
some told dw tools
some told database related technologies.

I am confused which one I need to take....
which technologies have lot of opportunities in future and less competetion...

Plz advise...

Sainath's Advice on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 :


Different people will tell you different things - but you need to pick and choose your area of specialization based on your aptitude and interests.Data warehousing, .Net 4.0, database technologies leading to a DBA role, these are all separate areas of specialization. You can't master each one - you need to pick and choose.

We can do anything, but we can't do everything.

You are at juncture where you can decide the specialization path. As Sainath mentioned DW leads to DW expertiese or DBA roles which is a big universe in itself. Looking at your experience, you are into Web development stream. So it would be more logical to learn which is complimentary to this stream which could be ASP.NET 3.5/4, ASP.MVC, dynamic data etc. With your expertise in classic ASP, it would be easy for you to catch these technologies. Sharepoint is also good tool to learn.
In a nutshell, choose something which is logical extension of your experience and would lead you to your chosen career path.
