Approaches on learning NB3 and resources for it

Hey, fresh NB3 user here :) After my (not conclusive) search I've noticed that there's no apparent place where all the resources for learning NB3 would be gathered besides the documentation. I think we could do that here in a forum thread, right?

Also, I'm very interested in your opinion on the best way to learning NodeBox 3, because currently I'm just exploring all the functions and have no system for learning beyond the tutorials in documentation for now.

Looking forward to your replies :)

    Hi Jurgis!

    Welcome to the NodeBox community.

    Yes, it is a challenge learning NodeBox, and the documentation is minimal. There is, however, already a wealth of information and examples here in this forum (both the NodeBox 2 & 3 forum and the Show Your Work forum).

    I encourage you to type node names or topics into the forum Search box, or browse through the postings and download examples that seem interesting. I am also just a NB3 user, but I've picked up the basics and now enjoy helping newbies. I have posted quite a few example networks; the best way to learn any language is by taking working examples apart and seeing how they work.

    (Another great way to learn is by helping others. I've learned a lot answering basic "how to" questions.)

    I hope you will dive in and start contributing to this forum, with both questions and answers. And if you have ideas about creating more in-depth tutorials or a project to create examples for each node, or whatever, I would love to hear them. I have sometimes thought about writing an ebook on NodeBox (if I could find the time), but am not sure how big the audience would be.

    Your fellow NodeBoxer,

    Hello, John!

    Thanks for your reply! Your suggestions about learning go hand in hand with my thoughts about it, so that's exactly what I'm going to do for the next two weeks and we'll see how it goes :)
    I definitely want to leave this community richer than I found it, I hope I will find the time to do it.
