Getting Started

When you download and install AMRITA you will notice that the system is quite large. That does not automatically make the system hard to use, but it does mean that you will need to give some consideration as to how you are going to get up to AMRITA-speed.

The Drink Me! document should give you some ideas, assuming you already program in one or more of: Perl, Python, Ruby, C, C++, Fortran, POV-Ray, LaTeX, HTML, Sable, and The Gimp. But you might also like to consider joining AMRITA's mailing list to contact other like-minded souls who can point you in the right direction:

Your Experience

The further you dive into AMRITA, the more you will come to appreciate the intrinsic difficulty of describing its usage to a target audience that ranges from novice programmers right the way up to systems developers.

The problem: AMRITA is not so much one size fits all as something for everybody. Thus newcomers can easily be put off, if they don't immediately find material that fits their tastes.

Therefore if you think your AMRITA experience might smooth the way for others, please contact .
