  • If you have .NET skills, then you have all the required foundation to do SharePoint development, it being built on top of that framework. I've been in the IT world for over 13 years now, and never have I seen a product more promising than SharePoint. As I always say, being a SharePoint Specialist, really means being a generalist at a lot of other technology. Employers are digging SharePoint people right now, you can't go wrong if you build your technology's skills. My 2 cents.
