     1== Getting Started with Sahana Eden ==
     2
     3Thank you for participating in the first GHC Codeathon for Humanity with the Sahana-Eden project!  Here are a few resources to help you get started.

     5== Install the code and tools... ==
     6
     7 * Try out this canned installation -- Ubuntu Linux in a virtual machine, with all the tools and code needed to work on Sahana Eden: [InstallationGuidelinesVirtualMachine Sahana-Eden Installation using a Virtual Machine]

     9The virtual machine install allows you to completely set-up the Sahana-Eden development environment using [http://www.virtualbox.org/ Virtual Box] - no fussing with your native OS installation.

     15== Play with (a) Python... ==
     16
     17 * If you don't (yet) know Python, that's not a problem -- it's a pleasant language that's easy to get started with quickly.  We'd suggest looking at the introductory lessons -  [http://diveintopython.org/ Dive into Python]
     18 * Best is, start up Python and try out commands interactively.  (If you did the above installation, you'll have Python in the virtual machine.)
