Welcome, Eric! I hope you enjoy your stay
I suggest that you do a few tutorials in order to become more familiar with the Löve framwork. This platformer tutorial on ExplodingRabbit
has really helped me when I started out. I believe there are some small issues when using it with Löve 0.9.0, but I suggest you to either try and fix it yourself (which would be perfect, since you'd also learn something while doing it) or ask here if you just can't figure it out.
Some more great tutorials: http://www.headchant.com/love-tutorials/

. As already mentioned, the Löve wiki is also very helpful.
When doing any of these tutorials, don't just read it, code it (actually type it!) yourself and play around with it! That way you really understand what each part of the code does, and can use that knowledge for your own projects later. Actually, you should do that whenever you look up any code on the Internet: Don't just copy and paste, but try to comprehend every bit of it. That way you can solve similar problems by yourself later!
Of course, if there's any problem you just can't figure out or find a solution on the internet, you can always ask us here. The Löve community is really helpful! I sometimes actually found the solution by myself while typing my post and trying to explain the issue - I guess it's similar to rubber ducking
