This presentation takes new developers through the process of installing the Tsugi learning application development environment and through the first Tsugi learning application. The developer tutorial materials for Tsugi are available for free at www.tsugi.org. Tsugi is free and open source, greatly simplifying building tools that comply with IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (1.1, 2.0, and ... ) and IMS Deep Linking / Content Item. External tools can provide functionality not present in Learn or Moodle like a course map tool, or social grading system, or a YouTube viewer with analytics. Tsugi also provides a hosting environment that is as easy to deploy as WordPress and allows institutions to host tools and provide an "App Store" of available tools to their users. There is also a free cloud-based Tsugi App Store that provides scalable hosting for open source Tsugi applications at www.tsugicloud.org.
