Spring is vast and encompassing. What's the best course of action for learning? Maybe this depends on the person, so about me.
I'm a developer, I've spent about 15 years programing in ASP Classic/VBScript. I know some C# and ASP.Net. About a year ago I became SAP Hana SPS 11 certified. In September I became 1Z0-808 certified. I know SQL to a degree, more precisely MySQL's version of SQL. I know a bit about Android development and I've breifly experimented with Kotlin.
How should I go about learning Spring? I'm not too concerned about certification right now.

I've also experimented with ASP.NET MVC3 and ASP.NET MVC4 and created a view sites using that technology. Thus the MVC model/theory is not a new concept to me.
Aside from all that I am not exactly a beginner when it comes to Linux, but by no means and am I an expect. I know just enough to get by on some systems some times.

If you can afford it or can get it paid for then I'll say the Pivotal courses, possibly the Core Spring one.  The thing about these courses is that they are taught by the actual Pivotal developers and not just some third party or academic. 

I'll start with the official documentation, since its always been very good Spring Docs

Since your new to the technology but not the industry, you will find a lot of similarities in particular the common use of design patterns.  Guess you could start with the core spring, favouring Java configuration and then move onto more advanced technologies like Spring MVC.      

Personally I don't think you can learn every part of the framework, since its so vast.  However for the most part spring operates in a similar way across many different technologies (templates and then even more templates!).

Thanks Pete.

I was wondering because I read an exert from Spring Boot in Action and while you get started creating a web site almost right away there is some talk about Spring Core and Spring Security with links to other books about those topics.

I will defiantly looks at the documentation that you have suggested, but I do not think that I'll be able to take the Pivotal courses due to prior financial obligations.

Thanks Tim.

I know that there are plenty of tutorials out there for Spring, Spring Boot and other Spring areas. Spring even has some walk through projects on the guide portion of it's web site.
Currently I have more then enough tutorials to get me going and when I run into problems I'll Google for a solution before posting.

Thanks once again Tim.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
