Resources and Going Further
This tutorial barely scratches the surface of what the Galileo is capable of. With Python and access to the Internet, there endless project possibilities: you can monitor Twitter, solve difficult math problems, even invent your own games. Plus the Galileo has other hardware that we haven't made use of either: analog inputs, PWM output, and USB host functionality, which could support USB keyboards, mice, webcams and more.
What project will you make with the Galileo? We'd love to hear about it! Let us know in the discussion tab.
