There is this book Magento 2 Development Essentials which helped me a lot in understanding the changes from magento 2. It has some examples, pretty nice, you should give it a try.


The official guide for PHP developers is here

Official guide for Front end developers is here

Also, there are [tools to migrate your code to 2] (https://github.com/magento/code-migration) if you already have an extension in M1.


After searching many hours i found some very useful resource for this.hope these are useful to others too.
