The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is the first bolometric experiment reaching the 1-ton scale. The detector consists of an array of 988 TeO2 crystals arranged in a cylindrical compact structure of 19 towers. The construction of the experiment and, in particular, the installation of all towers in the cryostat was completed in August 2016: the experiment is now in pre-operation phase and data taking is commencing. In this talk, we will discuss the technical challenges of the construction and pre-operation phases, the design choices and measured performance of its electronic instrumentation and the first results from the full detector runs.
