I started with the help of following links and tutorials, that may help you as well. My aim was to learn Ethereum and blockchain basics and then start DApp development quickly.

Hope this helps.
I'm new and learning too :)
You can start with getting your dev environment setup by following this: https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Installation-Instructions-for-Mac
Just a heads up, in your research, you might find the Greeter example: https://www.ethereum.org/greeter . But to save you some frustration, the code is deprecated and no longer works! I have a question already posted around this: Alternative to deprecated Greeter example code? . But you can see if you can get as far as I did! The one answer, which wasn't what I was looking for, might be a route you are willing to take.
Good luck! And if you find any other useful walkthroughs/documentation, pm me, and/or list back on this thread!
