== What is Sirikata? ==
* Sirikata is an BSD licensed open source platform for games and virtual worlds.  We aim to provide a set of libraries and protocols which can be used to deploy a virtual world, as well as fully featured sample implementations of services for hosting and deploying these worlds.
* Check out our [http://vimeo.com/sirikata Vimeo Channel] for videos of and about Sirikata.  We'll post demos and presentations about the system and applications there.
== Community ==
We encourage everyone to join our [http://groups.google.com/group/open-platform-community community mailing list] or read [http://groups.google.com/group/open-platform-community/topics our open archives]. This list list intended for the broader topics regarding Sirikata and collaborative 3D spaces.
=== Platform Developers ===
Sirikata is a platform for building virtual world applications such as games, meeting spaces, and social worlds.  Platform developers work on Sirikata itself, creating the infrastructure and plugins used by applications to run the world.  Applications developers then glue the necessary components together and can focus on any additional policies and scripting needed to run their world.
* [[Platform Developers|Platform Developers starting page]] is how you learn about Sirikata's architecture and getting involved in it's development. To jump in at the deep end: [[GetTheCode|Check out]] and [[BuildTheCode|build]] the code.

* [[CodingProjects|Coding Projects]] gives you ideas for something to sink your teeth into
* [[Documentation|Documentation]] is very much a work in progress but this is an overview what we currently have
* [[Roadmap|Roadmap]] is what we are planning in the near and far term
=== Content Developers ===
