# Getting started

This guide aims to help you with trying out Unikube for yourself and creating your first local cluster setup for a Kubernetes based project.

In order to make testing and trying easier for you, we provide an example application (buzzword counter (opens new window)) along the way but you can also try to set up your own application of course.

If you want, you can use these test credentials (without creating your own account) to try out the CLI first:

User: sandbox@unikube.io Password: #4kEMU8aPm

If you struggle with this guide at any step, please do not hesitate to contact us via slack (opens new window) or write us an email at support@unikube.io

Enough introductory talk, let’s get started!
