Tips on becoming a Force.com Developer

I'm currently an SFDC Administrator and Power User.  However, I would like to teach myself to become a Force.com developer.  I don't have any programming background and wonder what are the best steps to learning it.

 

I have a developer account and have read Force.com Fundamentals Guide, but that's it.

 

Any advice is appreciated.

Take a look at the Developer classes here. Also - many developers I've talked to learned from just doing. Complete the Force.com Workbook to learn a number of the platform features and see how to build an app.

 

There's a ton of other free resources on http://developer.force.com 

 

Hope that helps,

I also recommend this Getting Started page that has many additioanl resources.

And there are hands-on tutorials here in the Force.com Workbook.
