Chapter 6: Single board computers
General Embedded Linux
Single board computers require the setup of an operating system. Most boards run the operating from an embedded flash memory (eMMC). A good resource to learn about embedded Linux is Embedded Linux Wiki. There is also an IRC chat channel irc.freenode (#edev) to ask questions.
The [CHIP] is an interesting single board computer especially interesting for its price: 9 USD only!
1) connect to the CHIP via USB and terminal progam such as screen (u/p: chip/chip)
2) connect CHIP to WiFi as discussed here
3) install Node Version manager as discussed here
4) install git: sudo apt-get install git-core
These links may be useful to get started with Node.js and embedded systems.
