Looking to Switch From Asp.Net to Angular/Hadoop
I have total experience in Asp.net i.e. 10 years. I am trying to learn angular now these days. I want to ask that how much years i can survive in market upon that. If i move to Hadoob or Clouding etc. then will it be beneficial for me and will i be able to survive more than 10-15 Years in market. I am so confused to choose technology. Please guide.

Welcome to CE, @Kapil Arora . Frankly speaking, it's impossible to predict how long will any technology live. Angular is quite popular and is being backed by the likes of Google; so it's not going anywhere for the next 5 years for sure.
Instead of picking up the domain according to anyone's perception about its life-cycle, I'd rather recommend you to choose the domain / technology that you find more exciting than anything else. You'll learn it quickly and enjoy working.
Big Data and all related technologies are going to be the future for the next 10 years and so is AI, Machine Learning etc. Start exploring these technologies in your part time and you'll get a feel of what's involved. Keep an eye on the jobs and see if you can find a good match. Getting a certification in the relevant technology or domain is also highly recommended.
We live in a world that changes daily and the concept of 'long-term' is dying. We just have to keep adapting and learning new technologies as they hit markets. That's the only way to survive in the IT domain.
If you know asp.net you know programming that means you can learn Scala. As @Kaustubh Katdare mentioned nothing is fixed but if you learn Hadoop and Scala there is a bright future too. If you can code you have future simple irrespective of the language. Coding is doing.
@Kapil Arora - Has your question been answered? It'd be nice if you could acknowledge the help offered. If you have further questions, please ask them below.
Thank you so much all for your great suggestions. Will work for me.
Good to know that. We hope to see you around. A good start would be to update your profile and photo. Lot of interesting things coming up on CE. ?
Big Data has great potential. Hadoop, Apache Kafka, Neo4j, and all such technologies are rapidly becoming popular. I suggest that you should aim at developing a full-stack developer skillset. My office is actively looking for full stack developers with RoR and Angular skills.
Google Cloud Certification can help.
