where to start from?

where to start from?

Hi all,

I am new here and I don't know where to start from. Can anyone tell me where I can get tutorials?
I need to know how to install and configure the server, build a first app and publish it.

Hi Mize,

Welcome to the OutSystems Community.
You can watch tutorials here: http://www.outsystems.com/academy/

... and you can make the trial download here: http://www.outsystems.com/download/

After you finish the trial you can set up your own free community edition server that you can find here: http://www.outsystems.com/community/download/
You can also check our pricing information there and/or contact the OutSystems Sales.

Feel free to ask us whenever you have any issues with the installation or with the product :)

Hello Mize, and welcome to the Community :)

The first place you should go to is the Download Page where you can download your own personal Community Edition of the OutSystems Platform.

You can then head on to the OutSystems Academy for some excelent video tutorials on how to use your OutSystems Platform.

If you have any questions during this process, don't hesitate to place them here on the forums and I'm sure our community will do its best to help you.

hi once again,

I've downloaded the setup and began installing it, but had some errors.

as you can see in the attachement. Is this because I'm using windows 8 or something else?

Kind Regards,

I'm guessing it'll be Windows 8 which uses IIS 8. These are the requirements from the download link:

System requirements

Hello again Mizé,

As Richard said we are currently not supporting the installation of the community edition in windows 8.
However, we have some guidelines that might help you in the process.
Check out this topic.

Hi guys,

I solved my problem by dropping the W8 installation. I'm using w. server 2008 now. Thanks for your help. Now I can start watching the academy videos and begin learning the wonders of the tool.
