A beginners install guide to Tango Controls & Friends (written by noobs)
our lab works on small-scale lasers and we decided two years ago to base our control/command software on Tango Controls & Friends. A laser installation is typically, for us, less than 50 devices servers (temperature, vacuum, motors, camera), a tango server, a control/command station.
It's a tiny installation (for a tiny team : we are only two mates). We will repeat this pattern in each next lasers of our lab.
We are always almost true beginners and, thanks to the community, we plan to start a real application in six months.
Then, it's a work in progress : you'll find our lively notebook (more notes than exactly documentation) at :
Feel free to correct it ;)
Hope it helps

Hi Pierre and Romain
Thanks for writing it up and sharing! If you like, you could propose a PR in https://github.com/tango-controls/tango-doc so that it is also linked from the official Tango Documentation.
