Tomorrow’s Galileo Maker Session: Connectivity


YouTube player

Intel Galileo is great for internet-connected projects and that’s what we’ll be talking about during tomorrow’s 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. The Hangout will start at 9pm ET / 6pm PT on Thursday, March 27.

Even if you’re not on one of the registered teams, we’d love to see you there. Join our Google+ community, where you’ll get programming updates and be able to interact with other makers. Not only that, but you’ll be able to ask questions live during the Hangout On Air. Bookmark this post and on Thursday night we’ll update it with the live video stream once we start broadcasting.

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.

Discuss this article with the rest of the community on our Discord server!

Matt Richardson is a San Francisco-based creative technologist and Contributing Editor at MAKE. He’s the co-author of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi and the author of Getting Started with BeagleBone.
