=Ask Questions=
 
 
Perhaps the best way to learn about Eclipse is to ask questions. If you're not sure about where to ask a question, try the [http://www.eclipse.org/forums/eclipse.newcomer "New Comer"] forum. Note that you'll have to create an account to contribute to the forum (you don't need an account to browse).
 
 
There is also a very large Eclipse contingent on [http://stackoverflow.com/ Stack Overflow]; tag your question with "eclipse".
