Broadly speaking, i have found that multiple resources can be more of a hindrance than a help to someone who is just starting out. If you wanted to learn to play the piano, would you hire three separate teachers? Too much information from too many viewpoints is more confusing than educational.
Case in point: I am beginning to work on a project here at home which involves LP gas. I don’t have much experience with that so I started classes at the universities of Google and Youtube. Sadly, the deeper I dug the more confused I got. Finally I stepped away from the crowd and went fast e to face with a professional. Problem solved.
While I won’t go so far as to say this is the only reliable forum for those just starting out, it is certainly amongst the best. We have many people here who have a deep level of knowledge born of experience and they share that knowledge freely, clearly, and without ego.
My recommendation to newbies would be to mine this resource for all it can offer before diving into other, possibly conflicting, sources out there. One step at a time; lay a good foundation for judging the value of all the other information you’ll run into.
