How to start on Tango ?

Hello,
I'm new to this software. I'm looking to control a camera via tango. But I don't understand at all how the devices work. Do you have an example of installing a "fake" device to understand the logic.

Thanks

Hi Tom,

You can play with the TangoTest device server which is already provided with the Tango Source Distribution and with the Tango installer on Windows.

For the camera, you can have a look at the Tango classes catalog.
There might already be a device server for your camera: https://www.tango-controls.org/developers/dsc/

The latest TangoTest source code version is available on gitlab:

Hoping this helps a bit.
