Chapter 1. Getting Started with Your New Toy

Congratulations on becoming the proud new owner of a shiny little Netduino Plus 2! But before devising a plan to take over the world, you will probably want to get it plugged in and updated. Keeping both the Netduino firmware and the software on your PC updated is paramount to world domination.

In this chapter we will cover:

  • How and what software to install to be able to write programs for the Netduino
  • Getting your Netduino's firmware up-to-date
  • Writing your first Netduino program

To find each of the files required, navigate to http://bit.ly/LazyDownloads. You should install everything in the order laid out in the following sections or the world may potentially end.
