  • Hi, Nitin.

    I can only share my opinions.

    It can be hard to tell how valuable a skill is in a location. I suspect job ads online or in a local professional/technical newspaper will help you understand if there is a demand for SharePoint developers in your area.

    I am wondering if you have considered upgrading your Windows Application development skills to Windows 8 store front applications. Albeit, it may not be an easy transition and it might seem like it doesn't make sense, but Microsoft is going 100% with this tile view model in future versions of Windows. It has been suggested that Windows 10 won't even have a desktop view any more. All future apps will run on the Internet or in the tile view. The future does not look bright for Windows Forms or WPF, but it will still be around for a long time.

    Otherwise, SharePoint is a type of Web development used for creating web sites used internally at companies. I can say that America has good demand for SharePoint developers and administrators. I do not know about Bangalore. Developing SharePoint Web application might be a great way to break into Web development. You create the sites in the SharePoint framework. Some day, you may want to break free of the SharePoint framework and just create custom ASP.NET Web applications hosted on the Internet.

    There are a lot of great learning resources on the web for SharePoint. As well, Microsoft offers certifications in SharePoint 2010 and 2013. The 2013 exams are for developers and administrators. The SharePoint 2010 certifications are primarily for administrators and must be achieved by July 31, 2014 and will have less value than SharePoint 2013 certifications.

    You can earn the new MCSD certification for SharePoint 2013 developers. Check out the following web page describing this certification title: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/mcsd-sharepoint-apps-certification.aspx If you take one additional exam (70-487), you can earn the MCSD Web Applications certification title as well.

    Here are a bunch of free training videos for SharePoint 2013: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/office/dn448488

    Here is free training right from Microsoft on many different Microsoft technologies: http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com

    Here are Microsoft TechNet Virtual labs so you can practice:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs/default

    Alternately, you probably want to set up a development environment using a trial version of SharePoint.

    I hope this helped. Good luck.


    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
