I am a software engineer, but I am very new to the October method of doing things which is good because I have to learn things. I installed October and using the basic forum/blog theme Vanilla, but I wish to customize the theme. What do I need to modify to change the font used, colors, layout, etc? I know this is a noob question, but no one can know everything. :)

Thank you!

I figured it out:

Create a .less within the theme

Include the .less file in your default or other layout:

    <link href="{{ [
        'assets/less/theme.less'
    ]|theme }}" rel="stylesheet">

    <link href="{{ [
        'assets/less/mycustom.less'
    ]|theme }}" rel="stylesheet">

It appears that the inclusion of this .less file will over ride existing selectors in theme.less automatically. I hope this helps someone else with such a noob question. :)
