Cycling

So I know would like to know how to cycle my saltwater tank properly?
My search came up empty and I am sure someone here has done a good writeup just like people have done in freshwater. I dont mind if I have to search a certain person for their signature I am just having torouble finding a link anywhere here for it. Specificly I am looking for a reef and fish tank. I am (will be) new to saltwater and trying to collect as much info as possible before I even decide 100% if I want to go this route.

I am not going to be setting it up until I move which will be September at the absolute earliest. And even then that's only if everything works out fantastic for me lol. I will be using a 55 gallon most likely as I have a family memeber willing to donate one to my cause of awesome fish tankery
