I've been writing code since I got my ZX81 when I was 9 years old. My skills have improved a bit since, well, the programming books I read are thicker anyway.
I moved from MSAccess VBA to C# .Net about 4 years ago. My main focus is system and database design for desktop applications.
I reccomend that any techie should have a subscription at SafariBooksOnline.com. Regularly reading technical the latest books, and having a library of tens of thousands titles and counting is and easy way to get and keep your skills up to date.
