How do I get started?

Start with the Introduction page link on the menu in the top left. Then work your way through each section on the menu from top to bottom. It's important you don't skip sections as each one builds from the knowledge you gain in previous steps.

Try to take notes and play around with examples as much as you can. Take breaks if you begin feeling overwhelmed. There is a lot to take in at the beginning but there is no pressure at all with how fast you need to work through and understand things.
