I would recommend you to follow those steps:

  1. Before you dive into Silverstripe, make sure you have a decent understanding of web stuff like HTML, CSS, and a bit of JavaScript. It'll come in handy.
  2. Silverstripe is built using PHP, so it's a good idea to have a basic grasp of PHP and how it works.
  3. Create a development environment on your computer using tools like XAMPP or MAMP. These let you run PHP and databases locally.
  4. Silverstripe loves object-oriented programming (OOP). If you're not familiar with it, learn the basics of classes, objects, and inheritance.
  5. Play around with the Silverstripe CMS interface. Create some pages, manage content - you know, get comfortable with it.
  6. Understand Silverstripe's theming system. You'll want to know how to customize themes using Silverstripe's template engine.
  7. Modules are like add-ons for Silverstripe. Learn how to create your own to add features or tweak existing ones.
  8. Silverstripe has its way of dealing with databases. Learn about DataObjects and how the ORM (Object-Relational Mapping) system works.
  9. Understand how to keep your Silverstripe website safe. Security is crucial, so learn the ropes.
  10. Don't go it alone! Be part of the Silverstripe community. Join forums, meet fellow developers, and maybe even contribute to open-source projects.


The best way to learn Silverstripe is by doing. Start small, build websites, and work your way up to bigger projects.

Keep an eye on what's happening in the Silverstripe world. Tech evolves, and it's good to stay updated.
Learning Silverstripe can be a fun journey, and don't hesitate to ask for help when you need it. As you gain experience, you'll become a Silverstripe pro in no time!
