Live tonight at 9pm ET / 6pm PT!
Intel Galileo is great for Internet-connected projects and that’s what we’ll be talking about during this Getting Started with Intel Galileo Maker Session. With its built-in Ethernet and optional WiFi, Galileo can be a core component in Internet of Things projects. We’ll talk about Galileo’s capabilities and brainstorm about its connectivity potential using Arduino code and the Linux side of the board.

Like always, we have a few Master Makers to talk about Galileo:

Computer scientist, inventor, writer, and musician Mikal Hart is a senior software engineer at Intel Corporation in beautiful Austin, Texas. He is the inventor of the Reverse Geocache puzzle, is a founding member of The Sundial Group, and has contributed articles on electronics development and prototyping to several books and magazines.

Embedded system designer, lifelong tinkerer and maker, Clay Douglass has recently retired from Intel Austin and now spends even more of his waking hours in his workshop.

Tyler Worman is a professional software developer with interests in parallel computing, distributed systems, and creating connected devices. In his free time, he manages the rapid prototyping tools at the Ann Arbor, MI makerspace All Hands Active.

If you can’t join us live on at 9pm ET/6pm PT on Thursday night, no worries! We’ll record the hangout and post it to our archives so that you can watch it on your own time. It’ll be available on YouTube and on the Getting Started with Intel Galileo Maker Sessions page. And if you missed last Thursday’s Maker Session, you can still watch it here.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by MAKE. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Getting Started with +Intel Galileo now ships right away from Amazon!

Thanks Matt, no problem.  It's not your issue to solve, I do appreciate it.  Funny thing is... I just got a message from Amazon 2 minutes ago.  Apparently there is a delivery day between May 15 and June 11 now.  This is kinda link when you can't get a circuit to work and then you call over some help, and miraculously, the problem disappears.  Make you look a bit foolish... LOL  :)  Have a good day!
