This tutorial walks you through the process of obtaining the BCI2000 source distribution, and using it to build and test your own custom filters, implemented in C++ inside your own custom core module. It assumes that you have a good working knowledge of the C++ language, and basic familiarity with the compiler/IDE that you are going to use.
