Getting started

To start working with the nRF Connect SDK, set up your development environment automatically using nRF Connect for Desktop. This will install all the requirements, including the Visual Studio Code and the nRF Connect for Visual Studio Code extension, which is recommended for building applications.


If you want to go through a dedicated training to familiarize yourself with the basic functionalities of the nRF Connect SDK, enroll in the nRF Connect SDK Fundamentals course in the Nordic Developer Academy.

If you have any issues when installing the nRF Connect SDK automatically, install the nRF Connect SDK toolchain manually.
