I would suggest starting with Trailhead as it contains probably all basic things you need to know about Salesforce. You can also answer and practice coding with it as it will be connected to your developer account.


You can also start making an app here: https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Quick_Tutorial_1:_Build_a_Cloud_App_in_5_Minutes

  • Thanks, I will try the Trailhead course. But before my question was here, I have read many instruction at Force.com. Then I downloaded the Eclipse and started reading about Apec... so can you help me to understand the way I am. I lost my way to learn SalesForce. Actually, I want to make an Web App like Trello, it's an Project Management website, It's can manage project, deadline, task....and of course, my boss love to make the CRM, app from Salesforce

Apart from learning Apex and Visualforce you can go through this link. It is a very good article on Building Customer Facing Salesforce Apps. Regarding the project management app here is a source code available on how to create Gantt chart in Salesforce using Apex and VisualForce from Force.com Code Share. I hope this will be a good starting point for you.
