The more the merrier. It is fun and enriching to meet with other beekeepers in a club in person or online in a forum.
Beekeeping Associations are also a great resource. They organize beekeeping conferences where you can go deep for several days.
Finding classes, getting ideas where to shop and knowing the rules about beekeeping in your area is also covered here.
