Readings from a Field Notebook; 
getting started with IoT devices

Russ Herrold will discuss how the emerging 'Internet of 
Things' community has a natural 'fit' to the Free and Open 
Source Software development / Unix (the _last_ operating 
system) culture movement

There will be a 'worked example' of how to 'jump right in' to 
the deep end, start swimming, and swat at some bugs along the 
way; a set-up of the development environment; identifying an 
issue; upstreaming a (wrong) proposed fix; and looking again 
for a better one

Also along the way we will deploy a working IoT 
application into new hardware, and see the blinking lights
