I am in need of suggestions if my current expertise and a theoretical knowledge of other frameworks will help me fetch a decent lead/managerial position.
This might be a silly question, but any suggestions are welcome.
I have a similar background...so I hear your groan.
You did not mention it , but obviously time is an issue and you know going ahead..with pressures of family and all rising, this is only going to be worse. So maybe learning a lot of things 'on the side' is possible only in theory.
here is what I am trying in my project. As you design/develop/enhance your application, routinely point out design flaws/errors etc...highlight them to customer, suggest a new technology that will fix the error and persuade manager to help you with skilled resources. If the project is using only the technologies you mentioned, then of course it has flaws that can be corrected using modern technologies.
This is not a fool proof plan of course..and there are many 'easier said than done' scenarios involved...but it is more doable than jumping into an open source project that is already using latest technologies. Too big of a catch up to do.
Hope this helps and good luck !
