Should I learn Apex or Visualforce first?


I'm just wondering which order I should learn these in, and if it matters.

Hi ,

Learning Apex first is helpful .Since visual force has some concepts which need help of apex like custom controllers ,extensions and so on  .
Apex :
Visual Force :

To get confidence initially go for TrailHead sessions .You will be engaged while learning .


If you ever need to write a VF page, would mean you need customisation and for customisations we need custom controllers means "Apex" let it be for the purpose of showing some data on VF page via Apex Controller, or adding some complex validation rule (Without even needing a VF Page) via "Triggers".

So my recommendation and learning path should include getting familiar with Apex prior to VF pages.
