Experimenting with electronics using Arduino is fun, but what if you need more software and networking capabilities ? There's a board for that : the Intel Galileo. It's an Intel based linux PC with analogic and digital IO, plus USB and other typical PC ports. During this workshop, we'll see how to code for Internet of Things using Intel Galileo. Any linux compatible language can be used. We'll also brainstorm to find the best IoT project ideas. Should you want to see the technical details and get ready, Open Source Courseware can be found at : http://intel-software-academic-program.com/pages/courses#iot
