In this post, I would like to share some essential points that you as a java developer can relate to easily and make a conclusion from it.
This post will help in clarifying your doubts spinning around heads about the salesforce ecosystem.
According to a recent study by the International Data Corporation (IDC), there has been a huge increase in jobs that require Salesforce skills, and the Salesforce ecosystem is predicted to have 3.3 million new jobs and over $850 billion in revenues worldwide by 2022.
The best part is most of the recruiters recruiting for the profile of Salesforce Developer ask for Java as a skill as they understand the importance that this language still holds plus.
Apex Language which is again an object-oriented programming language is almost similar when it comes to the implementation of a function call, Collections usage etc. Salesforce Apex coding makes use of an in-built database unlike Oracle SQL or Microsoft MySQL used in Java. So if anyone knows Java, it’s easier for him to understand Apex.

Trailhead is the best thing provided by the salesforce community for you all. The platform breaks down barriers to learning and creates an equal and accessible pathway into the Salesforce ecosystem for anyone with an internet connection. From admins to developers, marketers to architects, consultants, analysts, sales and services roles, and everything in between. You can choose based on your interest.
Salesforce is a platform, It’s not a language. Keeping this in mind you can understand this point very well. As Salesforce is switching its gears towards Low Code and No-code and that is why you are recommended to utilise first of all its Out of Box functionality(in built) and if it is not fulfilling your requirement then only look ahead for customization.
A Salesforce Release is how Salesforce delivers new features and functionality to our customers. They occur three times per year (Spring, Summer, and Winter timed with the northern hemisphere seasons), and new features are often based on input from the Trailblazer Community via a prioritization process.
From these releases, as a developer you will think in the direction of how a system can be optimized, limitations can be mitigated, and enhancement in the process which will arouse your curiosity to be a salesforce lover.
