Welcome to Getting Started with Intel Galileo Maker Sessions! This 3 week program will engage teams of makers around the world to participate in making using Galileo, Intel’s brand new Arduino-compatible development board featuring Intel architecture. Along with a few Master Makers, we’ll host weekly live sessions via Google+ Hangout On Air. We’ll talk about the tools and techniques to build with the platform and we’ll share your team projects, culminating with a live show-and-tell of the most creative builds. Throughout the program, you can connect with other teams in the Google+ community to share your progress, offer tips, and get help. Even if you don’t have a team, we invite you to join in as we learn more about Intel’s Galileo.
Mark your calendars for our three live Google+ Hangouts On Air:
All sessions will be recorded and available in our archive on this page and on YouTube, but we encourage you to join us live so that you can ask questions and interact with other teams. During the live sessions, post your questions and comments to the community page.
About Maker Sessions
Getting Started with Intel Galileo is the latest Maker Session presented by MAKE magazine and Intel. This 3 week program is designed to engage teams of makers around the world to participate in making using Galileo, Intel’s brand new Arduino-compatible development board featuring Intel architecture.
Making and hacking: Live online events using a Google Plus community to bring together makers online and at physical locations for hacking and making. Maker Sessions are organized around a theme or a purpose – to look at technologies that enable new applications and to encourage people of all skill levels and interests to participate in the development of ideas and applications.
Hacking the hackathon: Bring makers together where they live and work – at home, at a university or at makerspaces. Explore opportunities to do something cool – something that perhaps nobody else is doing. Learn from master makers about an application area and discover cool maker projects.
