A Salesforce developer has an understanding of how Salesforce works, coupled with experience in the platform. The developer is hired by a customer/client for the purposes of customizing Salesforce to the specifications of the hiring party. Alternately, it could be an in-house programmer who happens to be skilled at working with Salesforce. These developers use tools such as Apex and Visualforce, as well as frameworks like Lightning Component in order to develop apps.

For further reference, you can check this blog too (https://www.simplilearn.com/how-to-become-a-salesforce-developer-article).

I would suggest you go through the Trailhead for a clear understanding of all concepts.

I hope you find the above information is helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks.

Thanks for the explanation,(But I know what salesforce developer does). I am studying on trailhead since last 1 month , that's why iam asking about being a full time developer 
Iam asking . "How long period does it take for a dedicated beginner to become good enough as a  Salesforce developer and land a job? " (Pls don't repy "it depends on you")

No one can't answer your question.

Because it completely depends on you. In development, you have to choose topics where you have interested in

Check online courses for the timeframe.

This community is focused on Salesforce technical discussions where the forums and participants are geared toward programming troubleshooting and support.

Hey Parag,

Study can help you in understanding the basic concepts but it can't make you a good developer. Study the concepts and then work on a project to practice key aspects of Salesforce. Also, it's important for a developer to understand core features of SF. In SF, building something custom(using code) should be the last option. If something is not achieveable using OOB features or customizations, only then code should be written. SF is a platform and not a language so knowing platform should be your primary focus area. 

Happy learning!

Well the ans is quite late but , still thanks for you suggestion. I am learning some seriously new and intresting things (thanks to addictive trailhead). I have achieved my admin 201 cert after 3 months of preparation (sad and joyfully on 2nd attempt ).
I am learning apex , can you please suggest some free online materials. Paid is also ok but cheaper one(can't afford tutor or classes ).
