There is a plethora of documentation on this site (not to mention a wealth of information and advice in the forums), yet the # of questions asking how to start working on the platform seem to be increasing. I'm truly stymied. Perhaps I go about my life in a drastically different way than many, but whenever I am new to something my first step is to learn all I can about said new thing - how it works, what its quirks are, how do people who already know about it use it, etc. I suppose this gets chalked up to my disturbing realization that common sense is not so common after all.
