re: You didn't mention the techs you used (e.g. WinForms, WPF, UWP). HTML/CSS is nothing really like WinForms dev. It has some similarity to the other ...
 

tons of great information here. thank you very much for it. the idea in my head was the employer would choose the tech, I would get an entry level position, and then learn. I fear I am wrong.

 

I believe that experience is worth a lot more than just the frameworks you used to get it. Sure, your knowledge might be mostly entwined with WebForms or WPF or something. But you probably still had to do the core bits common to every developer. You wrote decision logic and you integrated with external systems. (External meaning: database, file, email, web requests, etc.) IMO, UI frameworks are external systems too. :)

It feels like a tremendous loss of experience to move to a different set of tools, but the core experience that makes a developer is still underneath all that.
