This section of the docs is all about getting you up and running quickly.

If you’re new to, our Hands-on will take you through creating an account, installing flyctl, the command-line tool, and launching a simple demo app.

Once that's done, you can dive straight in and check out our Language & Frameworks Guides for a demonstration matching your project.

Or get into the details you'll need to work with Fly Apps through their entire lifecycle in the Fly Apps section.

We also have some web-based launchers, including Turboku; a way to dip your toes in by cloning a Heroku app to Read about it in the New Turboku launch post.
