These tutorials are hands-on. They use the Alfresco SDK, the sample Share application generated by the SDK's Share archetype, and Eclipse, to take you through the process of creating some simple Aikau pages. If you do not use Eclipse it is still possible to follow along by running commands on the command line and using your favourite editor to create the required code. It is recommended that before embarking on these tutorials you familiarize yourself with the Alfresco SDK, and in particular using the Share archetype. However, creating the required project that you will work with in the following tutorials is the subject of the first Aikau tutorial.
