Most of my 8yrs career as a Web designer & Developer, I've designed in Photoshop, hand-coded in HTML and used a PHP-based CMS like Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla. But I've just received a very lucrative job offer which requires SharePoint experience.

Since I know absolutely nothing about MS technology (I'm on Mac) or SharePoint, can you please suggest some good beginner article/books that explain SharePoint from a web developer's perspective. I'm an advanced user and a quicker learner so I want to learn SharePoint to not miss this opportunity.

Also, I wonder if its possible to host it locally and learn?



This question has been asked many times on these StackExchange forums and elsewhere. The results from a Google search for "getting started with sharepoint development" will answer this question very thoroughly.

Here an example: How can I learn the basics of SharePoint 2013 in a few days?
