Summary

The BeagleBone Black Primer


Master BeagleBone Black:


Today’s most powerful low-cost embedded development platform!


You can do amazing things with BeagleBone Black. Get started in just five minutes: all you need is a USB cable and this easy, hands-on primer!

Brian McLaughlin teaches you enough to be seriously dangerous. Start with the simplest embedded programming concepts. Explore BeagleBone Black’s capabilities, and learn all the essentials, from controlling I/O to establishing network connections.


Then, step by step, master increasingly advanced techniques with the Cloud9 IDE and BoneScript…Integrate external hardware…Install Linux or Android…Use Cape expansion boards to do even more.


Don’t just learn it: do it. This guide is packed with projects, from weather stations, to car computers, to a “capstone” project using Software Defined Radio to capture signals from local airspace and orbiting satellites!


You won’t just put BeagleBone Black to work: you’ll start imagining great projects of your own. And then you’ll build them.
