Jump-start your IoT development with the Omega2+ Starter Kit. This kit includes everything you need to create eight different circuits that will teach you how to control LEDs, read inputs, control and read external sensors and displays, learn Python, and more. Step-by-step instructions for building each circuit with the included parts can be found in the online Starter Kit Guide under the "Documents" tab.
Each Starter Kit includes an Onion Omega2+ IoT Computer, an Expansion Dock and a variety of electronics components that belong in the collection of every student of Internet of Things. This collection includes resistors, LEDs, jumper wires, switches, a 7-segment display and an LCD screen, to name a few. All kit components are nicely packed up in a handy plastic carrying case.
The Onion Omega parts we carry are separated into three different categories: Mainboard, Dock and Expansion Board. With the parts in this kit you will be able to plug the Omega2+ into the Expansion Dock and add any Expansion Board! For a kit that includes all of the parts in the Starter Kit plus the Expansion Boards, check out the Omega2+ Maker Kit.

I had a customer having boot issues. Without being able to work around it, he found that he was able to reset the module by pulling up the setup page using:
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
