Welcome!  Here are a few tips on how to get started.


1.  Follow is how you subscribe.

Log into the CA Developer APM community and click the Follow link in the upper right corner. When prompted, make sure you click Inbox to ensure that you receive email updates from this community.


2.  Update Your Profile

After logging in to the community site, you’ll see a person/silhouette icon at the top right of the screen indicating your profile.  (If you already have a picture uploaded, you’ll see your picture instead.) Go here to view or edit your profile.  Upload a picture or two; add your contact information; add some of your skills/expertise so that other members can find you.  Please take a moment and make your profile shared so we can know more about you; the default is to have no information available.  There are some great new challenges called Missions to add points to your profile as well.  Select your points to see the Missions and start gaining right away.


3.  Create a Stream

Streams are the way to follow specific content on the communities’ site. On the left side of the Home page, select the + New Stream button to create a new stream.  You can select people to add to the stream and/or communities.  For example: I have a Stream called “CA APM Dev Community” that follows the “CA Developer APM Community. Once you create that Stream, select the cog icon next to it to make it your Home stream.


4.  Ask a Question/Answer a Question

Now that you are set up, visit the content area of our community to review questions posted by others, or on our main community page you can ask a question or start a discussion yourself.

Invite others to join our community by sending them this link:http://bit.ly/caapm_dev. All they need to do is log in and select “follow” to join.



Once you know your way around the community, here's the actual pages that will get you started developing:


CAVEAT EMPTOR: It may go without saying, but remember that assets shared in the community are not tested like GA products.  Use them at your own risk.  There is no formal support, no warranty, and you should test them thoroughly in non production environments prior to using them in environments where the pain can be more severe.


Last but not least, if you have any questions, issues or want to read more about this site, visit the new training community and user guide here:  https://communities.ca.com/community/the-water-cooler/ca-communities-user-guide.  Best of luck and please do share your own tips in the comments below!
