I’m guessing you’ve arrived here at Duck because you're a web app developer. But, you are more than just a web app developer. You are a creator. And, creators learn by doing, not by reading… I feel you… But, please read everything in the “Getting started” walkthrough below!
Because I’m a creator just like you, I’ve made this stuff as short as I can possibly make it while still being a somewhat smooth read. So, it should only take 10 minutes, or so, to read. And, I assure you, it’s worth it!
Read philosophies - 1 minute read
Read core - 8 minute read
Read rules - 1 minute read
Look through Hello, World! - example
Look through Chat App - example

Patterns are also useful suggestions when developing in Duck!
Personally, I'd start with looking at a few patterns.
