I've checked the link you posted. That project seems very complex if you are just starting with your Edison. If what you want to do is to start using the SparkFun block, I recommend you to check their guide in the following site: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/sparkfun-blocks-for-intel-edison---9-degrees-of-freedom-block-. You will find a full description of the block and an example code too. I'd say that's the best way to get started with your block.
