The Intel Edison is really great at doing a lot of things, but one of the things that I was most excited about was its ability to use Node.JS to interact with objects IRL. As a front-end dev and a maker, I'm just trying to keep Atwood's Law true, haha!

The Intel Edison comes with wi-fi ready to roll after minimal configuration, and it's really easy to add Node.js to the platform with Intel's Yocto image. Once we get that up and running, I'm going to show you how to use Node to push data to a stream on data.sparkfun.com.

Step 1: What We're Actually Building

Step 2: Configure Your Edison and Load the Yocto Image

Step 3: Hook Up Your Sensor

Step 4: Create a Feed on data.sparkfun.com

Step 5: Set Up Your Dev Environment

Step 6: Write Your Code

Step 7: Run Your Code
