I had been studying a degree for four years and mainly used .net and java. Other bits and bobs and was set to be going down the .net path.

I was then given an opportunity to work with sharepoint and knew very little about it.

Sharepoint could be described like marmite you either love it or you hate it. Many developers hate it as it was designed for the end user without the developer in mind sometimes making it hard to work with.

I guess the question you really want to ask yourself is do you want to give yourself a challenge and learn a new technology or are you happy with what you know? I understand that your always going to be learning within our industry but your more likely to learn more in a new area where you have very little knowledge. However some of the .NET you already have in your arsenal will come be put to good use as well.

I've found it quite hard and have read many comments about becoming a good sharepoint developer can take years, however the rewards are high.
