New to Magento, making the transition from OsCommerce to Magento. Slowly getting to grips. Not a developer myself but have the task of building a full website. Hopefully I can get some help and input from the community.
Welcome to the community forums.
I guess the best way to start is to ask and try to help into the forums.
Also you'll find a information on StackExchange and you can start diving into the http://devdocs.magento.com/
Another recomendation could be to be aware of Magento issues on Github: https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues (if you are technical, of course).
Fianlly, you'll need to get your hands dirty with the platform.
I will have a look at those links. Biggest problem I have is making changes in files I think are correct but then they have no impact on the site.
I have a lot to learn!
