This is actually a good idea. I should be updating the post here soon with a little snippet to add to the tutorials section as well as just some additional links.

Giving the OP a look over, I am currently unsure of where to put the 'Last Words" section so any suggestions as to where you guys would think it would fit best and feel natural is appreciated.
