    Hi wad,

    A good place to start it could be Umbraco TV. Here you can learn about the basic conecepts of Umbraco from videos. from the begining on how to install Umbraco to create documentent types and so on.

    Another good way of learning Umbraco is to visit the training courses. Umbraco offers training, a level 1 and a level 2 course, after the courses you can be certified Umbraco developer by taking and pass the test. 

    You can read more about it here

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Wad

    The references Dennis mention above are some good starting points.

    Judging from what you're writing it sounds like you're going to be a backend developer and then it will make sense to focus on c#, MVC, Razor and perhaps WebForms since some Umbraco solutions are still being build using this. Maybe it's also a good idea to keep an eye on what ASP.NET vNext is going to bring to the table since future Umbraco releases will be based on it.

    Since v6 Umbraco has also made use of WebApi to make it easy to expose Umbraco data as an API, which you can learn more about here - You can also benefit from reading the general documentation here

    And make sure to keep an eye on Skrift, which is a newly started magazine covering Umbraco related topics. Another good ressource for Umbraco related stuff is the annual Umbraco advent calendar, which you can find here and each friday Warren Buckley is hosting uHangout on Google+, which is kinda "Show'n'tell" where different people are showing something awesome they made with Umbraco or talking about Umbraco related topics.

    It will also be a good idea to learn about MSSQL and JSON but I suppose that's also going to be covered while you learn some c# at some point :)

    If you're using Twitter then I'll also encourage you to monitor the #umbraco hashtag.

    Have fun! :)

    Cheers, Jan
