== Getting Started ==
 
When beginning to learn PEAK, the best order in which to explore the modules is: ["binding"], ["config"], and ["naming"]. These core modules provide the component-oriented framework upon which most other PEAK modules are built, and they will be used extensively within any application built with PEAK.
 
The next layer to explore should probably be the runtime modules: ["running"], ["commands"], and ["logs"]. Combined with the previous core modules, the runtime modules provide most of the machinery needed for building PEAK applications.
 
The ["storage"] module provides numerous storage management features, including high level relational database connectivity, a general transaction framework with ACID assurance and two-phase commit, and a DataManager framework for high level object persistence to multiple storage media.
 
The ["model"] module provides a framework for implementing the DomainModel pattern, which is based on high level "business objects" isolated from storage concerns.
 
The ["events"] module provides an "event-driven" programming framework that supports ultralight "microthreads" implemented via generators. It can stand alone or can be used atop Twisted for a more intuitive approach to asynchronous programming.
 
Further modules to explore include the ["util"], ["metamodels"], and ["security"] modules. The ["web"], ["net"], and ["query"] modules are under development.
 
Additional notes in GettingStartedWithPeak.
 
== Tutorials ==
 
The IntroToPeak tutorial is currently the best way to get started with PEAK. It demonstrates the use of many of PEAK's features by building a small application step-by-step.
 
Other tutorials include:
 * PeakDatabaseApplications
 * ComposingHierarchies
 * TwistedPeak example
 * Using ZopePageTemplates with peak.web
 * PeakFromBasics - a new tutorial (currently barely started!) which will develop an application from scratch
 * PeakWebHowTo - introduction to {{{peak.web}}} functionality
 
== Concepts ==
 
 * WritingInterfaces
 * WritingComponents
 * WritingAdaptors
