@illumina I was in the same boat as you about a year ago. Thrown into the deep end of the pool without knowing how to swim. I'd been (and still am) admin to other community platforms but Lithium Community was very different and I didn't find it intuitive. I started out with the admin "foundation" course which helped a little to navigate around the admin console, but I needed more so I signed up for the "Community Administrator Training Plan" and the "Community Developer Training Plan" both of which had 5 or 6 courses included. I'm not a developer, but the developer training plan taught me a lot about how things work. That got me some basic knowledge but too tell you the truth, the best education was real world where I needed to do something, tried it myself and if I got stuck asked specifics here in the community. When I'd get really stuck, I'd open a support case. The hardest thing for me was to find WHERE to do something. After a year, going through a UI redesign, going through a few migrations of other platforms to Lithium, I'm *fairly* comfortable finding where to do most common things and I have been able to, by poking around, to find where to do most other things. Again, I rely on this community a lot and people here have been more than willing to help me as I stumbled blindly along. Once in a blue moon I'm able to help someone here myself! Good luck.
