151<h1>Quick Start</h1>
152</a>
153<p>This page introduces you to developing .tel client applications
154 and gives directions on the functionality you need to implement
155 for specific .tel-related tasks. The document focuses on main tasks;
156  more functions and implementation options are available.
157  Please consult the <a href="/pages/api_landing.html">API references</a>
158   for full lists of API functions. </p>
159<p>Before you begin writing your new .tel application,
160please read about <a href="/pages/general_landing.html">.tel basics</a> to clearly understand the
161key concepts and functional areas. To get started with a new .tel client program, follow these steps:</p>
162<ol>
163        <li>Choose your target platform, OS, and environment.</li>
164        <li>Decide whether your program will be a standalone application or a plug-in.</li>
165        <li>Plan integration with the native address book or other client software.</li>
166        <li>Select the .tel tasks that your client program will perform. <br/>
167        Consult the table below to select an operation, go over the functionality you will need
168         to implement for that task, and refer to the specified section of the
169         <a href="/docs/devguide.pdf" target="_blank">Developer's Manual</a>
170          for detailed implementation guidance. If the operation you plan to implement
171          is not in the list, check the Developer's Manual as well.</li>
172        <li>Start coding! You are welcome to write to the forum about your progress and ask for advice.</li>
