Honestly I would not try 2.8 just yet (wait until the beta comes out in OCT/NOV).
BigBlend/ElDirector is correct it will be much more intuitive but right now it is still in alpha and buggy.

Then COMPLETE his donut course then after that you will have a great idea what Blender can do and how to do it.
Programs don’t matter much, once you learn the basics of 3D you can translate that across most 3D programs. I have been using Blender for almost 3 years now and watch tutorials for other programs, then I can figure out a way to do it in Blender.
