I would think my primary language would be highly used, due to it's cross-platform flexibility, but after a while I come to find out it appears my old friend C# and ASP.NET is being used more often in the job market. Now my question is; if you have little experience with a tool or language, or can pick up on things very quickly, would you teach yourself a tool or language just to keep/get a job in the field?
Does it seem like it works out at the end or is it kinda a bad idea even if you know a good amount of languages/tools?
Here is my background:
Certification in Object Oriented Programming
High School Diploma
Going to school for a certification in Computer Science.
Apache, MySQL, Visual Studio 2005-2008, Xcode, PhotoShop, Maya 3D,
CMake, Eclipse, MPLAB, of course Word, and Excel.
I know I should pick up on .NET more even though I've haven't touched it in years, but is there anything else I should learn or know that small businesses will more then likely use? Is it recommended to start picking up Microsoft's SQL Server or Oracle? I already know how to use MySQL, so I'm sure they wouldn't be too hard to master.
