The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit for Intel® Edison, otherwise known as the Edison SIK, introduces the Edison as a powerful Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The experiments contained within these pages will guide you through programming the Edison using JavaScript and controlling various electronics. Whether you are new to electronics and JavaScript or are looking to take your skills to the next level (to the “cloud!”), this kit is a great starting point.

Set Aside Some Time - Please allow yourself ample time to complete each experiment. You may not get through all the experiments in one sitting. Each experiment also contains suggestions on project ideas and taking the examples to the next level. We suggest that you challenge yourself and try some of them!
