The TAO Programmers Guide (TPG for short) is available for free as pdf download.

The TPG contains a small set of chapters with starter information and also a few advanced chapters. The TPG is focused at the DOC group distribution of ACE/TAO/CIAO/DAnCE.

Based on user feedback and requests we will extend the TPG on a regular basis.

We welcome any remarks and additional content, which you can send to

You can download the TPG from the Remedy IT open source portal.
