Getting Started with Octoprint

Hi everyone:

I want to get started with Octoprint and remote monitoring/upload of my prints.  I'm not experienced using a pi, Octoprint, etc., and everything that comes with it.   There is a large amount of resources out there with a lot of opinions and some of it conflicting, and I'm not sure where to start.  Does anyone have a recommendation on a resource that worked for them to get things working?

Things I know I want:  1.) A Pi3B - I'm flexible on that using a Pi3B but it seems like the most popular recommendation; 2.) an LCD touchscreen; 3.) a camera.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Pi 3B+ is  fine.

Personally wouldn't bother with the LCD (unless your workflow demands it).

Get a Pi camera its, cheap, easy to install and reliable.
