Any indoor gardeners or hydroponic fans out there today who could help me out?

I'm getting back into hydro after ~10 years out of it. Now there's 10 bazillion websites out there, most that haven't been updated in 2 or 3 years, and I'm starting anew.
I'm starting out with a small aero/aqua lettuce bin, but hoping to put up a small greenhouse in the back yard (I'm zone 6, northern WV) for "other" stuff. The idea is to generate the most food for the least cost.
So...suggestions on greenhouse design, hydro systems, what I should grow, and---really probably most importantly---online communities for discussions/suggestions/tutorials, etc?
(In the past I did moderately successful NFT and deep-nutrient bath.)
