Chapter 2. Getting the Software

The brains of the FLORA platform are controlled by custom code that you upload to the board over USB (Figure 2-1). In order to get this code onto the board, you will need to use a custom-made version of the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) that comes preloaded with FLORA drivers, libraries, and code examples. The Arduino IDE allows you to write, edit, and upload code to your FLORA board with a simple click of a button. Best of all, the Arduino IDE is free to download. The customized version for FLORA is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
