Sling tutorial online!

OK, so we have to wait just some more days for a downloadable Sling version with the simple Launchpad front-end, but while we're waiting, Bertrand Delacretaz has written an excellent tutorial here; http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SLING/Discover+Sling+in+15+minutes

Even if you're not willing or capable of using subversion to download the latest build (instructions after the link), it's a very easy to read article, which gives you the beef on why Sling is cool and how to get some quick stuff up and going, like inserting your own server-side javascript extension handler, or mounting sling as a WebDAV share.

Remember, Sling is as Jaxer as your get, but with WAR-file droppability and potential out-of-the-box groovish Java API integration. Watch this (or that space)! :)

Thanks Peter for the post! FYI the page has been published on the Sling website now, at http://incubator.apache.org/sling/site/discover-sling-in-15-minutes.html

Thanks! And I used it to look up stuff all the time last night. It really is very useful.
