Resources and Going Further

That should get you started on writing programs in C++ for the Edison, without relying on the Arduino IDE. In later tutorials, we'll cover Python, JavaScript, and other options for getting the Edison to do what you want.

Here are some other resources you might find useful for this topic from around the web:

  • libmraa - libmraa is Intel's highly structured framework for IoT hardware platforms. At the moment, it supports Edison, Galileo, Minnow, and Raspberry Pi B.
  • cmake - CMake is a cross-platform utility used to build projects. libmraa uses it.
  • userland - A useful treatise on the subtleties of living in a command-line world.
