Reading the documentation is pretty much it.
I'm not aware of a lot of tutorials or anything like that. The big concept that you'll have to get a proper understanding for is ranges, since Phobos uses them heavily. The best article/tutorial on those right now is probably this:
There are some articles on the main website which will help you out as well (they're listed on the left):
But there's not really anything designed to introduce you to the standard library or anything like that. The closest to that would be the article on std.datetime ( http://dlang.org/intro-to-datetime.html ), but it's just talking about the one module, not the library as a whole.
You can also look at the source code if you want to, but I don't know how helpful that would be (it comes with the compiler, or you can look at the latest here: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos ).

We have one set of forums/newsgroups/mailing lists. You can pick your interface:
web interface: http://forum.dlang.org/
newsgroup and mailing list: http://www.digitalmars.com/NewsGroup.html
Personally, I use the mailing list and gets e-mails as messages are posted, but if you want the mailing list updates to be sent as a digest, you can tell it to do that too.
