.Net is not going anywhere (in fact it's use is growing), and it's a good technology to learn, so I would say to take the courses to learn all you can about .Net.

Since this isnt a programming question I'm going to move it to the Corner Cubical forum, and also rename the title to be more descriptive :)

You might as well ask "Is worth learning to program on a Microsoft based Operating System?" The answer is the same.

Pretty much anything is worth learning. They'll all teach you something new. Learn it, even if only to be able to say "I know that."

I agree. Whe i was young I learned turbo pascal for dos applications and even basic. I don't use it anymore(thank god for that), but it helps me understand new languages quicker...


That being said, i also don't believe .net is going to vanish into thin air any time soon, and there are even efforts to use it on linux...
