Cubulating a group means finding a proper cocompact action on a CAT cube complex. This is a useful thing to do because cubulated groups satisfy a number of nice group theoretic properties. I will briefly discuss these properties, and then describe, through the use of two examples, a general procedure for cubulating a group if we are given an action on a wall-space.
