Hi this is Jeet.I am having 4+ years of experience in Microsoft Technologies(ASP.Net,VB.Net,C#.Net and SQL Server).Recently I have joined in a Kolkata based level5 company. I am not happy with my current job profile. They put me in a production support project with more than 10 application to support. The technology of those application are very old(Visual basic, VBA and ASP). I can't change my current project or company. In this situation I want to increase my competency's in latest Microsoft technologies. Please advice me what should be my next step to increase technical knowledge. Somebody advice me to learn Sharepoint as it is very promising technology.
Is it possible to learn sharepoint by myself without any industry project and shift my career to sharepoint after some month.?
If yes then please tell me how to proceed?

Hi Jeet,

"Somebody advice me to learn Sharepoint as it is very promising technology. "

Who is this somebody - is this person an industry expert? I don't think even industry experts will try to make such predictions. Has he or she already succeeded big-time? Please be extremely careful about what advice you base your  actions on. Of course, Sharepoint is a promising technology but my first advice is that please do your own detailed homework before finalizing in an area. Please check the link below, Shiv has already given some good views.
