The Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA) at Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) facility is the latest accelerator constructed and commissioned at the laboratory. The ring assembly was completed in July of 2018 and the beam commissioning commenced shortly thereafter with first circulation of electron beam established on August 21 at the energy of 47 MeV. The capture of 100 MeV beam was achieved in October followed by a period of systems commissioning, which led to the first period of accelerator science research in February-March of 2019. The research at IOTA focused on the demonstration of nonlinear integrable optics for improvement of stability of high-intensity beams but also covered a wide range of complementary beam physics experiments. This talk summarizes the lessons learned during the IOTA beam commissioning and presents the highlights of the experimental results.
