+========
+Tutorial
+========
+
+This tutorial assumes basic working knowledge of how Riak works & what it can
+do. If you need a more comprehensive overview how to use Riak, please check out
+the `Riak Fast Track`_.
+
+.. _`Riak Fast Track`: http://wiki.basho.com/display/RIAK/The+Riak+Fast+Track
+
+
+Quick Start
+===========
+
+For the impatient, simple usage of the official Python binding for Riak looks
+like::
+
+ import riak
+
+ # Connect to Riak.
+ client = riak.RiakClient()
+
+ # Choose the bucket to store data in.
+ bucket = client.bucket('test')
+
+
+ # Supply a key to store data under.
+ # The ``data`` can be any data Python's ``json`` encoder can handle.
+ person = bucket.new('riak_developer_1', data={
+ 'name': 'John Smith',
+ 'age': 28,
+ 'company': 'Mr. Startup!',
+ })
+ # Save the object to Riak.
+ person.store()
+
+
+Connecting To Riak
+==================
+
+There are two supported ways to connect to Riak, the HTTP interface & the
+`Protocol Buffers`_ interface. Both provide the same API & full access to
+Riak.
+
+The HTTP interface is easier to setup & is well suited for development use. It
+is the slower of the two interfaces, but if you are only making a handful of
+requests, it is more than capable.
+
+The Protocol Buffers (also called ``protobuf``) is more difficult to setup but
+is significantly faster (2-3x) and is more suitable for production use. This
+interface is better suited to a higher number of requests.
+
+.. _`Protocol Buffers`: http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/
+
+To use the HTTP interface and connecting to a local Riak on the default port,
+no arguments are needed::
+
+ import riak
+
+ client = riak.RiakClient()
+
+The constructor also configuration options such as ``host``, ``port`` &
+``prefix``. Please refer to the :doc:`client` documentation for full details.
+
+To use the Protocol Buffers interface::
+
+ import riak
+
+ client = riak.RiakClient(port=8087, transport_class=riak.RiakPbcTransport)
+
+.. warning:
+
+ Riak's default port is 8098. However, when using the Protocol Buffers, the
+ Riak listens on port 8087. If you forget this, you will *NOT* get an
+ immediate error, but will instead receive an error when fetching or storing
+ data to the effect of ``RiakError: 'Socket returned short read 135 -
+ expected 8192'``.
+
+The ``transport_class`` argument indicates to the client which backend to use.
+We didn't need to specify it in the HTTP example because
+``riak.RiakHttpTransport`` is the default class.
+
+
+Using Buckets
+=============
+
+Buckets in Riak's terminology are segmented keyspaces. They are a way to
+categorize different types of data and are roughly analogous to tables in an
+RDBMS.
+
+Once you have a ``client``, selecting a bucket is simple. Provide a string of
+the name of the bucket to use::
+
+ test_bucket = client.bucket('test')
+
+If the bucket does not exist, Riak will create it for you. You can also open
+as many buckets as you need::
+
+ user_bucket = client.bucket('user')
+ profile_bucket = client.bucket('profile')
+ status_bucket = client.bucket('status')
+
+If needed, you can also manually instantiate a bucket like so::
+
+ user_bucket = riak.RiakBucket(client, 'user')
+
+The buckets themselves provide many different methods. The most commonly used
+are:
+
+* ``get`` - Fetches a key's value (decoded from JSON).
