    Hello everyone. I have a UDOO Quard board. Before purchasing it i have never used any such kind of board like Arduino or Rasberry Pi. I have visited the site and the tutorials helped me to setup up my board. I have prior experience in C programming. I need to know that where to start and how to start. If someone can recommend me any material related to it. I have found a book but it is for Android OS. I need material related to Linux OS and a complete introduction to such boards. Confused and feeling helpless :(. Need help :(

    Hi, it all depends what you want to do with your Udoo Quad. For information about the Arduino Due side go to https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardDue as it is exactly the same. The Arduino IDE is already installed on the Linux side and the sketch language is very similar to C as it is based on it. A lot of info can be found on the Arduino website.

    For the Linux side Udoobuntu is based on Lubuntu which is a small version of Ubuntu. There is a lot of info on www.lubuntu.net
    I personally use python to program but you also can use C. I believe the compilers are already installed but i am not sure. For a small Introduction on the commands line look here http://www.udoo.org/docs/Cookbook_Linux/Linux_Command_Line_Interface.html

    Finally to communicate between the linux part and the Arduino part there is a special serial device and a special section of the Quad manual covers this.
    http://www.udoo.org/docs/Serial_Libraries/index.html
    There is a special section about C with instructions how to compile.

    So if you have special needs first try to look in the documentation, then search this forum and if the answer is not there ask it here.

    Have fun!
