What resources are available for learning Dynare? I think it'd be nice to put together a list of resources that available to those new to Dynare. I've had a little experience with it but it'd be nice to know what resources I might be able to go to for questions on the beginner/intermediate level. Also, I would prioritize resources that have full-fledged examples. Does anybody have any suggestions?

In addition to official docs, I'd suggest Practicing Dynare for several examples, and J. Pfeifer's advice for estimation. – ivansml Feb 15 '15 at 17:44
Although not dealing with Dynare specifically Harald Uhligs "A Toolkit for Analyzing Nonlinear Dynamic Stochastic Models Easily" is an excellent reference when dealing with DSGE models and log-linearization: – Plissken Feb 16 '15 at 12:30

Eric Sims at Notre Dame has an excellent set of self contained notes:

He uses a small neoclassical model as an example and goes over the model derivation, how to construct each block of Dynare code, different simulation options, interpreting output, and how to do higher order approximations. Full code is included for each step in the notes.

This community thanks you for the link. Nevertheless, this answer would be great if you could add a little something about what these notes contain, what models do they work out as examples... things like that. – Alecos Papadopoulos Apr 4 '15 at 19:29
