I've been pretty excited by the idea of connecting things to the Internet - I'm a big proponent of automating things, and automatic physical real-life things are especially exciting. I've also been following with interest the efforts that Intel's been spending in the Maker movement, especially with the Galileo board.
I'm familiar with the genre of embedded systems, but not the specifics of Galileo - I have experience with Atmel devices, but I've never used an Arduino board before. I'm also curious to see how working with x86 instruction set changes the experience of working with embedded systems.
Having spent last little while working on a smartphone and currently spending time thinking about over-the-top messaging platform, I'm excited to go back to basics and spend some personal time exploring the embedded space again. I'm looking forward to understanding the Galileo board inside-out, and charting that journey and sharing what I learn. Here we go!
