Sparkfun support will be closed from 3:00PM to 4:15PM on April 27th for a company-wide townhall meeting. We will resume regular hours on the 28th.
One of our engineers has written a couple tutorials for one of our new favorite boards - check them out!
It’s Monday, Tax Day, and in Boulder, it’s also snowing heavily and stubbornly refusing to become spring, so let’s all take a deep breath and focus on the positive. Since we started carrying it about month and a half ago, we’ve been having a lot of fun exploring the potential of the pcDuino - our high performance mini PC platform that runs full-featured operating systems. Engineer Mike Hord has already written two tutorials for the pcDuino - Getting Started, which shows you how to hook everything up and solve a couple of the possible initial issues, and Programming, which walks users who are familiar with programming but not the pcDuino (and possibly not Linux) through writing their first program, as well as accessing the hardware resources on the pcDuino. If you haven’t tried out the pcDuino yet, or you’re interested in seeing what else you can do with it, these are great places to get started!
Between the two, there should be enough information for anyone who is reasonably comfortable with programming to realize a project using the pcDuino. Archlinux also supports the pcDuino and hosts some great resources. If you have any questions, suggestions or pcDuino projects of your own, feel free to leave them in the comments!
