How Do I Transition To a Web Development Career?

I have been in IT for almost 30 years and most of my career has been on programming and database development.

I have very little exposure or experience on web design and development.

We are now using .NET at our site but no hope for me to get into any web development soon.

How best to get the exposure and experience in web so that I become more marketable?

What online courses would you recommend that I look into, so that I can at least learn the latest tools and techniques?

1. IT CareerCoach

The twin and/or allied careers of software development and database development are amongst the most marketable and best-paying careers in the information technology (IT) industry1
