Begin with IBM Developer Works' section on Learning Resources. It has articles, tutorials, and other free resources.
You could then move on to some more formal training –- either classroom training or computer-based training. Classroom training is good for new developers, since it affords the opportunity to learn hands-on while also providing interaction with a certified instructor.
In addition, TLCC makes very good computer-based training courses.
At the very minimum, you should get a good book such as the Lotus Notes and Domino 6 Programming Bible.
Once you start developing, you should bookmark a few sites that you can search for information. Along with SearchDomino.com, you should get familiar with the Notes/Domino Forums and the IBM Support page.
