Guides for AwesomeAdmins

When I was first entering the world of Salesforce development, the only education I had for development was in HTML.  So when I went to find out how to install and setup the Force.com IDE, MavensMate, Eclipse, I was totally freakin’ lost.  I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing and whether or not I had set things up right.  Everything I found was written for people that already knew what they were doing, and I had no idea what to do.

That’s why I have created the following install and setup guides for the Force.com IDE, MavensMate, and the Haoide (my personal favorite).  In addition, I will be adding how-to guides for each app geared towards #awesomeadmin, with step by step instructions, and without the assumption that the information is just known.

If my instructions are unclear, or you have questions, please let me know.  Like I said, I am writing these for admins and others without a development background, to help, not to cause frustration, so if something needs to be modified, let me know.
