My company just dropped a bomb on me said that they are discontinuing further PHP sites and switching to asp.net. Since I am the only web designer/developer in the company and the rest of the dev team are .NET guys, they see this as a perfect integration into scalability.
I don't have a problem learning a new language, but since I deal with all the marketing and quick deadlines, this is really freaking me out.
Anybody out there make this switch and should I be as worried about it as I am? I just have a feeling the learning curve will be steep and asp.net will not give me the ability to execute certain nuances I need as a designer.
The learning curve is surprisingly quick once you put your head around a couple of things. Like postbacks and how it affects the code.
It's quite versatile!
Once you get the syntax down, you'll wonder why you ever wasted all your time writing your own functions in PHP when most are built into .NET already :).
Just take a step back, learn the basics of the language, learn the code behind structure and it becomes VERY easy to manage.
