why the hello world example is soo difficult to run? I was able to get the hello world of airflow running with in a couple hours a few years back. Now I'm trying to evaluate Prefect and it's soo hard to run a simple hello world in your hosted Prefect. it kept saying the runs are late without offering any hint what to do.

i think you are not running the agent

the agent, to my understanding, is something that collects data from the runs (maybe I'm wrong). I don't really care what collecting data, I just want to run a "hello world" program
thank you so much for the information Chris! I'll look at the doc. But regardless, the bar is too high for early adopters. I spent 8 hours and still can't get a hello world running (versus I was able to get a "hello world" airflow (in a host environment) running within 2 hours a few years back ). I thought new tools/frameworks meant to make customers life easier , no?

Thanks for the feedback - while your experience is certainly valid, it has not been the common experience of our users and customers! I believe that if you take some time to read the documentation on how Prefect is architected (which is drastically different from Airflow) you’ll find the same. And please let us know if run into any confusion in the docs, we’re always trying to improve them 👍
