I am in over my head here!

I just downloaded openFOAM and know nothing about it. I am starting work at an experimental research and development company. We are currently working on hydrofoils and want to step into the world of CFD.

We want to get started as fast as possible. We have some .stl files with our existing foils and want to plug them into openFOAM and start learning.

What is the fastest way to start using the program?

I ask this as respectfully, and humbly as possible.
