STM32F4, Tips for a beginner?

I have lots of experience with the Arduino and the STM32F4 is my first "real" step into microcontrollers. I've downloaded all of the PDFs and the firmware from the STM32F4DISCOVERY page. They have been helpful but I'm still lost at how to do some of the basics. Reading the demo code helps but it's not all that clear.

Are there any guides that walk you through the process of something simple and explain why each section of code is needed or beneficial?

Are there any libraries that abstract away some of the dirty work? I don't expect anything as easy as the Arduino library but maybe something half way there?

I'm comfortable with C and don't mind doing things by hand if needed. Are they any tutorial collections / videos / books / magazines that are aimed at bringing a beginner up to speed with this MCU?

Lastly, how does the ARM ecosystem work? Will code for one ARM work on another? Do all ARMs share common qualities? Any good books you can recommend?

Thanks!
