    I would recommend picking up a good book on Joomla if you really want to become a pro aside from the online resources. Beginning Joomla!, Second Edition by Dan Rahmel is a great book on Joomla and will teach you all the basics to get you up and running in no time.

    A good online resource that I've personally used on many occasions is joomlashack.com. The tutorials there are really helpful. Of course, you can find several other joomla learning resources on google.

    wordpress is a blog even though it had many features to compete with custom made website and joomla is a content management system and its more powerful than wordpress. Major difference is wordpress is a blog and with little customizations we can make it a content management system but joomla itself is a content management system and have variety of third party components and modules by using which you can make any kind of website. No matter its a review site, blog, social networking community, job portal, classifieds site, e commerce. Its lot simple and much secured compared to wordpress.

    If you need some personal training on joomla then i can help you with small pay for hours. Pm me if you are interested.

    The Lynda.com tutorials are super awesome for joomla beginners. I highly recommend you check them out

    I hope this is a joke... unless you are Neo and learn kung fu in 5 seconds.
