This page contains information both on tutorial events (below) and on how you can try AiiDA by yourself with a downloadable tutorial.
You want to learn AiiDA and try it out? Here you have access to our AiiDA tutorials.
No need to install AiiDA! Just download the VirtualBox Image, start it following the instructions, and follow the tutorial text.
Starting from 2019, all AiiDA tutorials can be found on the aiida-tutorials GitHub page.
Short video tutorials
We have prepared a number of short (2-5 minutes) introductory and advanced video tutorials on the Materials Cloud Youtube channel.
Check them out!
