While I find the documentation and forums about Drupal very useful, I realize it can be a bit technical for a lot of users. Rather than just tell people how to do something, I figure it is best for them to try it themselves. Drupal is an awesome system, and I wanted to start giving back to the community that created this great tool! Using technology is an excellent way to learn about whatever it is that you are using, but there is undeniable value in reading about what you are using as well. Most tech-oriented people rely on each other to get through any task - the sharing of knowledge and experience is invaluable (not only for tech, but anything in life). Do those internet searches. Be bold. Don't let the machine beat you. Humans have a tendency to want things to work immediately and flawlessly. But if it doesn't work the first time, don't give up because it might be too hard. The reward in the end is most likely working through the problems, and you gain the benefit of learning much more than just the minutiae of the specific task.
Tutorials and walk-thrus for Drupal
As with most things technology-related, if you are not familiar with it, I recommend that you review as much material about whatever it is you are trying to work (first). Then, really the best way to learn how to use something, start actually using it and see what you can do. There is no shame in having the manual next to you when you dive in. You will be amazed at what you are capable of achieving with a small amount of effort!

All you need is a valid email address to create an account on the site and you can try your hand at creating content and other some functions on Drupal. Just use common sense on the site, and be respectful of other people who might be using it.
