Joomla

I need to get up to speed on Joomla REAL quick.

I am an experienced web developer; I know WordPress somewhat, enough to build sites.

Is there some kind of documentation like "Joomla for WordPress developers"?

Thanks

Ack. No.

It's not radically different from WordPress but the terminology and backend are different enough that it will give you some issues.  There are a number of books on it and the Joomla For Dummies is a very good and complete primer.

Try these too:

https://docs.joomla.org/Portal:Beginners#Absolute_Beginners_Guide_to_Joomla.21
http://help.joomla.org/files/VisualGuide15.pdf
https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Getting_Started_with_Joomla!
https://docs.joomla.org/Glossary
https://docs.joomla.org/Tutorials:Beginners

The important equivalencies:

Articles = Posts/Pages/Custom Post Types
Modules = Plugins
