We've been hard at work here @JiveDev to make getting started with your development experience with our tiles, apps, SDK, and RESTful API as easy and intuitive as we can. A great place to start is with a Simple Stream Integration and using our quick start tool: Simple Stream Integration Builder - Jive Developers
We also posted a Dev Tool series that takes you through the journey of building Simple Stream Apps on Jive as far as you can pretty much go before needing to get some middleware running.
Hope that helps!
Thank you Rasheed
