Documentation Sources for Arma 3 Modding

As you've probably noticed, there is no comprehensive resource for Arma 3 modding. Finding reliable information requires a lot of Google-searching, reading forum threads, backtracking through potentially obsolete tutorials from previous versions of Arma, etc. It is very frustrating. In an attempt to ease your path to finding reliable information, here is a list of links to some key resources on the web. This list currently includes (semi-)official documentation-type resources rather than links to forum threads and the like. You'll have to do those searches on your own and hope for the best.
