Back in 2014 I studied .NET development. It was a two year programme that looked briefly into most corners of .NET, basically everything from; C#, .NET, WinForms, WPF, WCF, SQL Server, ADO.NET, EF, WebAPI, ASP.NET MCV, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, jQuery and Azure.
But since my graduation I have mostly been working with completely different things, and the industry have moved so fast behind my back that I'm not sure what technologies I should focus my "getting-back-on-track-studies".
What I'm interested in is learn how to create modern websites with a mobile app accompany it. I was thinking of starting of making a rather simple forum site with; user accounts, logins, CRUD for posting forums threads, and perhaps a real-time chat function,
push notifications, a mobile app (Windows UWP to begin with and Android/iOS later on), and hosting it on Azure with SQL Server. So hopefully that will give you an idea of what I'm hoping to achieve in the end, obviously this is a rather long-term learning
So what technologies would you suggest me looking into?
I would like to keep everything as Microsoft related as possible, I'm a fan boy :) Is TypeScript worth having a look into?
Thank you for your input.

The latest from MS is ASP Core and Razor Pages. You can find comprehensive docs from the learn link above.
There is a lot to learn and learning is a personal journey. I would just find a sport and start.

Hi Kristoffer Helander
ASP.NET MVC 6 or .NET Core MVC?
ASP.NET Core is an open-source, cross-platform framework for building modern, cloud-based web applications on Windows, macOS, or Linux
ASP.NET is a mature framework that provides all the services needed to build enterprise-class, server-based web applications on Windows.
Which one is right for you, please refer to the following link:
Is Code First still in use? I liked working like that, thinking from a OOP perspective rather then database perspective
WCF or SignalR (for push notifications, automatic refresh and chatt function)
Jquery and Angular are popular now
Is Bootstrap still 'the thing' for responsive web design or is there something better? Has Microsoft's Fluent Design System been implemented for the web or is it just for UWP?
Boostrap is the thing for responsive web design
Is TypeScript worth having a look into?
You could to learn it if you have free time
