I am looking for advise on how and where to get a prior IT career back on track...until 2001, I was employed 12 years in the IT field..I was a client server application developer...bulding fron tend with VB6 and server side sql code using either MS SQL Server or others...Now I am looking to get back in, and of course I know my skill set is stale and needs to be brought up to speed... But..I do not know in what discipline are the jobs..I want to target the correct area.. On one hand, I could go the Microsoft.net route..but I don't know the demand, and also what Other skills are needed along with it.. (ie Java, etc) OR..I could go the A+ certification route..I know it is more out of sync than my previous exprience, but my hunch is that there is always a decent demand for pros in that area.. So..I am looking for any cooments/advice..etc...btw, I am in the RI area...with in the Boston market.. Thanks!

Hi..I was a VB6/SQL programmer...I was a client/server applications developer...I DO enjoy that work, but I don't want to update my skill set in that field if the availability of jobs in not there or in limited supply...
So I am trying to target my re-traing to that of the ares of job demand...
I was wondering about A+ certification stuff..meaning whats the demand..
Basically, I am looking for an opinion of what disciple of the field now has the greatest job demand, and secondly, knowing my backround, which direction seems to make the most sense..I know this isn't a cut and dry answer...
