Here, I will start collecting resources to learn Blender 2.80.
The Blender Guru
has three great videos:
The Blender Guru has just put out a series of Blender 2.80 video tutorials (thanks, Andrew!). Find them here.
Creating hundreds of walking people -- surprisingly straightforward
Sculpting in Blender 2.80
The Blender 2.80 Reference manual is here.
A free de-noiser is described here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGAjsSNtX6E.
The new Blender 2.80 "Principled Shader": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H5W6C_Mbck.
Principles of Design videos: https://www.ctrlpaint.com/videos/principles-of-design-introduction.
Blender Campers: These are the notes we will be working through. You don't need to print these (thank goodness -- 374 pages!), but we will follow along with them. The "Very Brief Blender Notes" (below) will also be helpful.
These are Blender example files from the notes.
You can download them one-at-a-time below, of get them in one AllFiles.zip here, which includes all .blend, .jpg, .bmp, .obj, and .mp4 files.
Blender Campers: please pre-load these on your memory stick!
|balltubes.blend||Physics: ball rolls down tubes|
|blowing.blend||Blowing particles (see particles.blend below)|
|cycles_stereo.blend||Spherical Stereo for a VR Headset|
|cycles_stereo_spherical.jpg||Spherical Stereo image for a VR Headset|
|dominos.blend||Rigid body dominos animation|
|golf.blend||Physics: ball rolls into a hole|
|hinge.blend||Rigid body joint|
|lattice.blend||Modeling with lattices|
|meshes.blend||The Blender set of mesh objects|
|mist.blend||Shows use of the mist option|
|modelmoved.blend||Human-ish model posed|
|particles.blend||Non-blowing particle system (see blowing.blend above)|
|rigid.blend||Rigid body motion|
|scene.blend||A scene we will use to talk about rendering|
|textures.blend||Both procedural and image textures|
|wireframe.blend||Using the wireframe modifier|
|worldtex.bmp||A texture file of the world|
Pre-created files that can be imported into Blender:
|bunny010n.obj||The Stanford Bunny|
|dominos,mp4||Falling-dominos physical simulation|
Keyboard shortcuts from the notes.

Here's notes on some other fun things:
Scratch notes -- drag and drop programmiung with animation and sound, and even some game development
SketchUp notes -- who would have ever guessed it was so easy to draw in 3D?
ParaView -- Interactive 3D Visualization
TinkerCAD notes -- this is really good if you want to make models that can be 3D-printed
Game Maker notes -- develop your own 2D game with collisions and sound
Processing notes -- serious graphics programming
