Blender has long been a loose confederation of artists, programmers, and hobbyists. And with Blender becoming more and more powerful, people, schools, and studios are beginning to have the need and desire to use Blender in their organizations. However, there is often a great hurdle that must be overcome with Blender: Learning how to use it.
When it comes to learning Blender, the internet or possibly outdated books might be the only way you can get into a software growing at such a fast pace without already having someone who knows it well.
