Thanks for sharing this!
Technically speaking, my best piece of advice would be to learn the basics of git. It can be useful to save your butt from digging a hole you can't get out of. Committing code often will help you keep track of working code and experimental code. Revert things that you had working but since broke.
For everything else, it sounds like you are doing the right thing, finding a community and trusted colleagues is probably the most important thing. I know there are slack channels out there that can help (though I don't have any specific ones per se).
Keep it up :)
Thanks for reading and taking the time to respond! That's a solid argument for learning git - I'm sure it's one of those things my future self will thank me for putting the time in on.
