Beginner's Resource Collection

Let's use this topic to collect some resources a beginner might find useful.

Keep this user-centric, there's other categories for development and other discussions.

*This is a wiki, so if you, dear reader, have something to add or edit, go ahead (you will need a certain [forum trust level](https://blog.discourse.org/2018/06/understanding-discourse-trust-levels/) though)!*

**Official Jolla Resources**
* [Jolla Store](https://shop.jolla.com/) get your SailfishOS licenses here!
