demo splunk instance for tutorial

I was wondering what I needed to do in order to get started with a splunk tutorial. Do I need to
a) Install the splunk instance locally and upload demo data into it ? (or)
b) find a demo splunk instance available on the internet.

I searched for (b) but could not find it. It would be really useful if it existed to get people onboard splunk quickly.

Start with the Search Tutorial on the docs site. It walks you through installing the trial version and includes a sample data set that you can upload into Splunk, with instructions for searching, saving and sharing reports, and creating dashboards.

There is also a separate Data Model and Pivot Tutorial if you are interested in those features.

Hello Prasant,
See this tutorial.

-> please check installing splunk on windows/ any other version.

You can go ahead to see splunk site documentation as well. You can install splunk trail version to learn things.
