Light BWK and Lee Posey have launched a new Blender FAQ in an effort to make it easier for new users to pick up Blender.

Recent events have created a surge in interest to Blender. New Blender users are at an all time high. Lee Posey and myself both experienced the amount of new users complaining how hard is it to understand Blender on non Blender forums. We dived into other software to understand their plight. From that experiment (also for BEER development) we saw where new Blender users stumbled. So in 12 hours of work and planning, we created Blender FAQ to guide new users to understand Blender with the least amount of time and effort. We love to teach using "how to fish" method (all our courses use the same method). 2 weeks to master the basics, that is our guesstimate. It is our hope that new Blender users can master the basics by teaching themselves Blender with bare minimal guide.
