    You know... aside from the official documentation, not really. What I did, to be honest, was learn the basics via one of the old 1980's texts on the subject, and then for anything else I wanted to do that was slightly more advanced I just Google it and see what I can find (else just trial and error). There's loads of useful threads on StackExchange, for example, wherein people post snippets of code as solutions to specific problems (although I often find that said codes are unnecessarily complicated and often quite specific, but they serve as a decent starting point).

    Well, I'll try my hand at it then :3 Hopefully it's not too radically different or anything!
