    After 4 years gap where to start our learning.


    I have 6yrs in exp in dot net. But now 4 years gap due to maternity. Now again i want to start my career.

    In my experience I have only worked up to dot net 2.0.

    After that so many versions r available now. So now should I need to learn versions like 3.0,3.5 or directly I can learn only 4.5,4.0.

    My experience fully into web development.

    Thanks in advance.

    As you have already 6 years experience earlier on .net, its not that difficult to get in to the IT industry.

    Definitely you need to learn 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 features as now a days people are looking for latest frameworks.

    Dot net framework 3.0 / 3.5 features:
    Auto Implemented
    Implicit Typed local variable
    Implicitly Typed Arrays
    Anonymous Types
    Extension Methods
    Object and Collection Initializers
    Lambda Expressions

    Go through below article links for 4.0/4.5 which explains each feature in detail.

    As you said you are mostly into web development, try to learn mvc. and wcf as those are the trends now.
    with that you can learn javascript and jquery too which will make you more reachable

    Do Good... Enjoy your life.....

    Hi Mercy,

    My suggestion is better to adopt new technologies which are available in present market. As per my point of view SharePoint is the best option, if you are really interested it's take sometime to adopt that but having bright future in current market. If you don't have time to spend, 2nd option is MVC. If you are good in .net you can easily adopt that technology. Prepare 3 to 4 projects in your home and prepare few concepts by reading books / internet and be confident before going interviews that's enough.

    All the Best
