IMPORTANT: Complete the user tutorial first. This section builds on the knowledge you have acquired there.

Follow the menu on the left to learn programming Boomla one step at a time. For most intros, you will find a button over the video saying “Open in Playground”. Clicking this button will set up your playground website to start from the exact same state as shown on the video. That makes it easier for you to try things.
