Default .NET Programing Experience

Hello,

Im start a .NET Course in 1 month ...
I will be studying C# , Javascript , HTML , CSS , ASP , ADO , SQL , XML Web Services
, Windows Forms , WPF , WCF , Windows Azure...

The thing is that im working as a Helpdesk and Network Support ..
I will be working the the .NET employees department as i got promised, but im not sure if i will stay working with the company..

So, what would be my best thing to do to gain experience with .NET since every company require 2 years Minimum ?

Freelancer jobs came to my mind ... i guess its very good thing to do , to build projects and stuff ..

Is there any thing else ?

Thanks

I'd focus on SQL, and C#. Learn those well as you will likely be able to transfer your knowledge there across the board with other programming languages and scenarios.

In the IT department where I work, there are all types of apps I could write for them.

I'd suggest just helping them out and write apps for them based on what they lack or currently pay for that would be easy to rewrite. Things such as password storing app (that encrypts people's passwords) rather than storing their passwords on their desktop in a .TXT file, stuff like that. Create a few apps like that to gain experience.

If you create a password storing app (in a DB somewhere) thats encrypted, and write the UI for updating/storing/retrieving, etc you will find out really quick that it's a much bigger task than you imagined.

Hang around to get the two years worth of experience. Get yourself involved with the company .NET projects, even if it is jsut assisting or code reviews.

Training classes do not really cut it; they expose you to the concepts, not the real world.
Training is not going to get you freelancing; freelancing is for those with years under their belt.
