    Re: C# & Time

    An idea is to search through local classifieds in solely your area for the most common request for programming positions over say a month's time or more, you should be able to determine which direction to go from here.

    In my area employers are looking mostly for full stack developers fluent in both front and backend web development and even better can work with different technologies.

    For example, I might be working with xamarin for a spell, get a call for a production fix with a ColdFusion app then back to xamarin. Another time working with C# web based or Windows based solution. What is important is you bring to the table the ability to satisfy the potential employer with more than one technology or compliment these skills with architecture and database knowledge.

    In today's web centric world you can never go wrong learning JavaScript (jQuery), CSS and HTML5 along with templeting interfaces.

    Other options are moving to another location. I did this in 1994, did not limit my search for a position and ended up moving from Pennsylvania to Oregon where I worked for one company from 1994 until last January then moved to a sister company (two blocks away) which I'm at now. Moving can be a huge deal but many do this and are successful both in employment and making a new life for you (and your family).

    I'd also look into some of the web-based frameworks like Angular, NodeJS, and React.. and if you want to do full-stack development as well, also look into back-end things like Spring-boot & Java.
