Getting started, no idea where to begin

I have been doing embedded systems for a number of years across half a dozen different brands of uCs.


For the life of me I can not figure out where to being for the kinetis stuff.


So there is KDS, but now there is S32 which I assume is a rebrand of KDS but nowhere in the literature does it say so explicitly. So do I use S32 or KDS?


The examples for my KEA board are for code warrior, but then I read that codewarrior is no longer going to be updated for new kenetis, so I should not use code warrior while at the same time use code warrior?


Then there is processor expert but it looks like S32 integrates processor expert into it and yet again there is no explicit documentation that I have come across that says processor expert is integrated into S32.


No where in the documentation is there concrete documentation for CMSIS, I assume that it is not available and developers use processor expert instead?


Can someone tell me what is the best way to start? I have never been so lost, not even when I first started embedded systems.
