To get started using Asymptote, it's a good idea to go through this guide in the following steps:

  1. Follow the instructions on the Downloads and Installation page
  2. Once you have downloaded and installed everything, you may wish to try out interactive mode and optionally configure TeXnicCenter to use Asymptote, as described on the Interactive Mode page
  3. Look over Basics and skim through Reference or Examples to learn the basics of Asymptote coding.
  4. Make a bunch of images!

If you wish to go on and become an Asymptote master, the sections on Advanced Configuration, Logical Operators and Loops, and Macros and Packages are essential.

The Asymptote manual, containing more detailed and advanced instructions, can be found at http://asymptote.sourceforge.net/asymptote.pdf

If you're a problem solver, be sure to check out the Olympiad package!
