Getting started with Activiti … in less than a minute

At Activiti, we know that first impressions matter. Nowadays, and certainly in the software world, if you don’t convince people within the first ten minutes after download, huge chance that your product ends up in the trash bin.

With Activiti we have set ourselves a more challenging¬† goal. If we can’t convince people in the first minute after download, we’re doing something wrong.

So no excuses on not having enough time to try out Activiti: getting started with Activiti takes only one minute of your time! Or even less, depending on your machine speed. That’s quite a fresh idea, isn’t it, if you know what hassle it is to get some competitor products running ;-) .

To prove we’re serious, the following screencast shows the one minute after downloading Activiti from the website, and running the demo setup, which installs a complete Activiti environment for you.

If you want to do this yourself, just follow these steps:

  • Download Activiti from Activiti.org
  • Unzip the downloaded file
  • Open a terminal window and navigate to the setup folder inside the unzipped folder
  • Type ant demo.start and hit enter

And that’s all there is to it!
