There aren't any guides, (short tool clips) like that with Affinity. We have a lot of tutorial videos though.

Hi tictactoe,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Just tick the magnet icon in the main toolbar to turn Snapping on. If you click on the arrow immediately on the right you can set ip up as you see fit. The guides will appear as you move/transform objects. Check this video tutorial for more information:  Snapping and Dynamic Guides 

Additionally you can also check measurements between objects selecting a source object, pressing and holding ⌘ (cmd) and mouse-hovering other objects in the canvas (or the canvas itself) on Mac. On Windows you have to press and hold the CTRL key instead.
