Get started

Get going in a few quick steps.

This guide will take you step by step through the basic development steps you'll need to get started with Dynamic Content. Using the example of a simple banner, we show you how to create a content type, use that content type to add some content, consume the content from the CMS using our Content Delivery SDK, and render it on a page.


This tutorial works best if you already have a Dynamic Content account. If you don't have an account, then the quickest way to get started is to sign up for a developer trial and power up the get started wizard.
