Thanks for this article I am working as .NET developer and supporting apps. I think .NET is growing very fast and I am planing to catch up on Salesforce as it looks promising.

Do we know the job environment and tech challange if I plan to move from .NET to Salesforce.
As per my understanding one should start with Salesforce Admin and then move to dev area is it right ? or moving to Sales force is not a good idea!

Salesforce development is all about adding functionality to the existing CRM platform. It really requires buy in of the Salesforce domain and all that entails.

I wouldn't move to an admin position, with your .Net experience moving straight into developer role is more than feasible.
