Simple Concept: Where to start in SharePoint development?

[Question]: I am a complete newbie in SharePoint development. Where should I start?


Here is what I recommend to read to build a solid understanding of SharePoint architecture and development. I would recommend to read highlighted pages and then dive into development.

I suppose the whole  highlighted  pages reading will take up to 2 days.:

Understandingsharepoint journal issue "Introducing SharepPoint 2010" by Bjørn Furuknap - pages from 99 to 152

SharePoint 2010 Development with Visual Studio 2010 (Microsoft Windows Development Series) - Chapter 1: Introduction into SharePoint pages 1-130

What about 2013?
here we are go: Simple concept: Jump start for developers of SharePoint 2013 App
