Fluid is the greatest gift that was given to the community in the last 
years. The approach is solid and works out very well. Start using it and 
you'll see the fun, stable and clean view it provides.

Codewise, fluid is easy to learn, learning by example could be a good 
choice, eg. the core provides several fluid based extensions, there are 
quite some tutorials on the net, and after you got the basic idea, the 
reference sheet by typovision is helpful for a while until you are used 
to everything. After that, problems are solved with a quick look at the 
examples in the header of the view helpers.

A good start is always a 'fluidification' of some own pibase extension 
by throwing away the substitute marker stuff, solving it with a fluid 
standalone view instead. This way you don't need to interfere with 
extbase at the same time. Comparing the results before and after easily 
shows its beauty.
