To get up and running with Pantheon, you'll need to create an account. In this tutorial we'll get signed up and create our first site. Then we'll take a tour of the user dashboard and site dashboard to see what you have to work with. We'll also make sure to point out where you manage your SSH keys for Git and get your connection information to start working on your new site.
