My company recently hired a new CIO, and he is changing our technologies from Lotus Notes to Microsoft products. I enjoy working with Lotus and am wondering whether it would be better for my career to stay and learn Visual Basic or join a company with a solid commitment to Lotus Notes?
I would recommend making the switch. You've acquired a certain amount of expertise in the Notes technology, why let that go to waste? Becoming a novice VB programmer is not necessarily enhancing your career, it is making you a utility player. I think it's great to add skills, but add them around a solid core. Besides, the average CIO lasts about 2 years at a company, so by the time you become a solid VB programmer, a new CIO may come in and want to make another change.
