This portal is intended to provide developers with an opportunity to explore the capabilities of Episerver Social, a platform for modeling and managing user-generated content. Here you can create a trial instance of Episerver Social, which grants you full access to the Episerver Social platform for a limited period of time.
During that period of time you can use an instance to:

An Episerver Social instance is a private repository for user-generated content. It allows developers building applications with community features to model, store, and deliver their social content.
An Episerver Social instance provides access to all of Episerver Social's services, including:
The Episerver Social Developer Guide is a great place to get started with the platform.
The Developer Guide includes:
The Episerver Social blog also provides helpful insights into developing with Episerver Social, which include feature overviews, implementation recipes, and product news.
A number of sample implementations are available on GitHub to get you started:
The Episerver Social discussion forum can be found at Episerver World. This forum is monitored by the Episerver development team, product managers, and support engineers making it the perfect place to get assistance.
The instances that you create are intended for trial purposes only. In general, this means:
Each user is allotted a quota of instances, which they are allowed to create. When those instances have been consumed, additional instances cannot be created.
As instances expire, you may create new ones to replace them. You may also remove instances that you are no longer using, which will allow you to create additional ones.
When an instance expires, all of its content is removed and the instance will no longer be accessible to any application. The trial period cannot be extended. However, an expired instance may be replaced by creating a new one.
Existing content is removed when your Episerver Social instance expires. If you reuse an application for demonstrations, it's recommended that you implement a seeding process to restore your demonstration content to a new instance.
The expiration dates for your instances can be found on the My Instances page after you log in.
