Learning places

First of all please make sure you have the development environment configured. If you're not sure have a look here. Now lets see the places from where you can get information and help:

  1. Developer page This is the place from where you can browse or download the API's help. Have a look at the available API's and based on your needs drill-down to details.
    2.Language developers community As you go along with your work and experiments it's inevitable that you'll have questions and the best way to answer questions is by discussing them with other people. Some people might already faced the same issues, others can help based on their experience or maybe just see the problem from a different angle. Take advantage of the dedicated language developers community and ask your questions, don't be afraid nobody will judge or bite.
  2. Age of developers series This blog series it's about providing useful information to people looking to develop applications for OpenExchange.
  3. SDK Samples Downloading and installing the SDK is part of the development environment configuration. Besides project templates it also comes with sample projects that you can use for learning or starting a new project.
  4. Open Source projects We've open sourced more than 10 applications which are published on OpenExchange. This way you can see real code that is in production today, used by translators, reviewers and project managers on a daily basis. You can see real solutions to real problems not just samples.

Final words
