App setup

This section will walk you through setting up Geopoiesis as a first-time user. It focuses on getting the app to run locally first, with the Deployment section covering deployment and ongoing maintenance of production installation. However, this material is can be used as a refresher by even experienced users of Geopoiesis, since setting up Geopoiesis from scratch is not something you're likely to do often.

In this tutorial we're using Terraform and Docker. If you're not familiar with either of those tools, we would suggest looking them up first lest the learning curve quickly becomes too steep.
