    Galileo Gen 1 Tutorials


    tutorial-0-thumb.jpgTutorial 0 - Getting Started

    The first installment of tutorials that is designed to get you building the next big thing. Covers the basic structure of Arduino programs, writing code in proper syntax, getting an overview of the Arduino user interface, and engaging in your first set challenges.



    tutorial-1-thumb.jpgTutorial 1 - Input / Output Basics and Sound

    In this lesson, you'll explore how a microphone sensor interprets sound as measurable numbers. In order to interact with your module, you have to connect it correctly. You'll learn how breadboards work and how to properly connect wires to it for completing a circuit. You will also learn how to calculate resistor values based on the components of your circuit.



    touch.pngTutorial 2 - Writing and using a custom function

    In this lesson, your physical body will be part of your program. We will be using a capacitive touch sensor as an ON/OFF switch. Once the sensor is given a high signal, it will turn on an LED and activate the microphone. The sounds the microphone pick up will then be responsible for controlling the brightness amount of a different LED. You will understand how to use the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) pins to output an analog signal which provides the range needed for fading the LED in and out.



    telnet.pngTutorial 3 - Using Telnet and DHCP

    In this tutorial, you will learn how to connect to the Linux side of the Galileo using telnet by configuring an Internet Protocol (IP) address, as well as getting one automatically using an Internet connection via Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP).
