Now that I am certified, I'm wondering which area of Java to learn next. I completed the certification for a university course and I am not interested in studying for another cert at this time but I do want to leverage my new Java knowledge while it is still fresh. Some interests are web development (JSP, Struts, Hibernate?), J2ME and C#. Yeah I know, C# isn't Java -- but C# has recently become the standard at my workplace and, from what I can tell, is fairly similar to Java so maybe the learning curve wouldn't be too steep.

Thanks in advance for any advice on a logical next step.

Choose either Java or C# and get more hands-on experience. There is no substitute for experience.
 
Tell me how it all turns out. Here is a tiny ad:
