Getting Started with the Intel Galileo (Gen 1)

If you watched the //BUILD Day 1 keynote back in April, you may have seen the Intel Galileo board in action driving a gigantic keyboard (02h:03m:15s).  While I was watching it, I opened another browser and ordered a Galileo for myself.  It took me a long time to get my Galileo (almost four months, due to backorders), but they are readily available now, from a number of suppliers for somewhere between $50-$80 USD. 

Microsoft has even released a version of Windows that you can install on the Intel Galileo Gen 1 boards through the “Windows Developer Program for IoT".  In subsequent videos and blog posts I’ll show you how to do just that, but I thought I’d get started with a 101 introduction to the Intel Galileo and working with it as it ships from Intel.

So without any further ado, here is the video:
