Need help with hands on in HANA


I know this question might have been already answered many times before. But I couldn't find a link for that here. So I am posting the questions again here. Sorry for the duplication.

I am new to HANA and want to learn more about HANA by doing more of Hands on Practices. I am more interested in modeling and reporting aspect of HANA and thus would like to concentrate especailly on the data modeling, data extraction and reporting areas during my journey of self discovery of HANA. I am currently making a transition from the world of Informatica, Oracle and BO to SAP HANA ( I guess you can understand from where I am coming and what I am trying to accomplish here). My immeditate goal is to develop a traditional data warehouse application in HANA.

To get started I subscribed for the 30 day free trial access on the cloudshare pro sever. I was able to connect to HANA server from HANA studio (as SYSTEM) and was able to import the SFLIGHT data model. This is where I am now. But I need some help in proceeding further. Can any one point me to the right documentation where I can practice hands on on this SFLIGHT data model? Is this still a valid data model that HANA supports or do I need to import any other data models for my hands on? Any additional help is really appreciated.

Hopefully with the great minds here in this community I can make the right tranisition to SAP HANA world and one day become as knowledgable as you people are and can begin to contribute to the community.
