Leaning c# and then onto ASP? or WPF? or Silverlight? next

Mar 7, 2013 at 6:32 PM
I'm learning c# but when should one start to learn ASP, WPF, Silverlight or go onto the more exciting stuff?

I've been learning c# on and off for the last 3 years. Would anyone like to share their thoughts on going beyond c#?

The next project we do could be a combination of say c# and ASP for example or c# and WPF. Has anyone any thoughts please.

Kind Regards

Hey jmatty,

In my personal opinion ASP would be great next learn because it is really sought after in .NET programmers.
If going for pure recreational then I think Silverlight would be fun and interesting to learn. Maybe learn another language like Python or a web language such as Ruby or PHP? Making a hobby website would be a good past time activity.

Hi Matt,

can we go ahead with wpf as of now from my information there is a huge requirements in health care and finance domain
also it gives some rich ui controls it is gonna help us in the future as of now whatever the different practicals we have done are based on win-form and console application so again it will help us to understand the C# thoroughly.

and I forgot to mention we will learn XAML along with MVVM architecture of development

I think we should go with WPF since we are more familiar with desktop development, then go ASP, Silverlight etc.

I feel like I'm losing touch with all the different Microsoft technologies on offer. Regarding which technology to focus on after c# e.g. WPF, ASP, Silverlight I've posted the question the MS WPF Social Forum if anyone would like to contribute to this discussion also please :-
Much Appreciated

Hi everyone
I just started a discussion on The excellent discussion I started was :-
They seem really friendly and helpful for anyone wanting to start learning ASP. Of course you can program in C# as well as ASP so why not do both at the same time?
I feel like I'm getting somewhere now - lol :)
