Getting Started with CF.Cumulus

Ready to dive in and get going? Let's get you started. 

There are two approaches for getting started with CF.Cumulus. Either you can go it alone or we can give you a helping hand. 

Do It Yourself

We love self starters, so for the Do It Yourself route we've publish content in our members area to get you up and running. The content here will continue to evolve alongside the product. However, it will always be based on the latest publicly available codebase. This route requires a certain level of technical competency but we're always here to help if you need us. This route is recommended for exploring and testing out the framework. 

Do It With Us

Alternatively, you can Do It With Us. Through this route we can provide tailored help and support to guide you through deployment and usage. You get access to a detailed knowledgebase and design collateral, access to features not yet in the public codebase and enduring product support should you require it. This approach rapidly accelerates getting started and ensures you get the most value from the framework. This route is recommended for production projects.
