The most important resources for those new to the SAFE Network are:
Here are the best places to ask for help:

The SAFE Network Forum is great for having in-depth discussions on subjects related to the SAFE Network. But in some cases maybe you don’t feel like creating a new topic. For example, you might prefer to first ask your question in a chat room and only create a new topic if necessary.
The #safenetwork:matrix.org room can be used for general discussion about the SAFE Network, and it’s a good place to ask for help! It’s bridged with the SAFE Network Telegram group, the #general channel of the SAFE Network Slack and #safenetwork on freenode.
The #safenetwork-dev:matrix.org room can be used for technical discussion about the core libraries and APIs of the SAFE Network, and it’s a good place to talk with other developers! It’s bridged with the SAFE Developers Telegram group, the #development channel of the SAFE Network Slack and #safenetwork-dev on freenode.
The #safemarkets:matrix.org room can be used for discussion about MaidSafeCoin/Safecoin and other cryptocurrency trading chat. It’s bridged with the MAID Trading Telegram group, the #trading channel of the SAFE Network Slack and #maidsafecoin on freenode.
Any messages you post in the Matrix rooms mentioned above will automatically show up on Telegram, Slack and IRC (and vice versa: if other users post messages on Telegram, Slack or IRC, you will receive them via Matrix).
We mainly use the /r/safenetwork subreddit.
Previously, we were also using the /r/maidsafe subreddit, but MaidSafe recently decided to archive /r/maidsafe so that we can all focus our attention on /r/safenetwork. See this post for more info.
SAFE Network enthusiasts meet periodically in meetup groups. It’s a great introduction to the community and a great way to learn and socialize with other people with a similar interest. Meetups are usually informal and open to everyone.
