Through this short Getting Started coding series, you will learn the basics of creating an account, transferring HBAR, signing, and submitting transactions to the Hedera Testnet. The Hedera test network allows you to play with our APIs in a non-production environment. You will see how easy it is to get started with one of our Hedera SDKs in the programming language of your choice. First, you must create a Hedera Portal profile to receive test HBAR.
Once you have completed the instructions, you will receive a Hedera Testnet account ID (0.0.x) and your private/public key pair on your testnet page. You will need to copy over your account ID and key pair information when you set up your coding environment in the following steps.
