I don't know of a site devoted to Debian tutorials, but you can find a lot of good stuff (and some do doubt worthless stuff) on Youtube once you get past the cat videos: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=debian

Have a look at Package Management and APT your commandline utility to run things.

I second that recommendation. Debian has more good documentation pages than almost anyone other than Red Hat, but they can be difficult to find and some are release specific. The Handbook is current, well designed, well maintained, and freely available in multiple languages.

It's also in the debian repository. And a few other lesser known options. Most of which can be gleaned by spending some time in the debian irc channel on freenode.

# apt-get install debian-handbook

$ iceweasel file:///usr/share/doc/debian-handbook/html/en-US/index.html

If you use the package system. For noob though you might start with tldp and other stuff. And of course the man pages. For apt, dpkg, apt-get, hier, and other things.
