    I'm a second year electrical engineering student and I want to work on Intel Galileo Gen 2 for a project. I'm going to attend a workshop on IGG2 and IOT. What do I need to know as prerequisite? I know C programming and a little embedded C..This whole thing is really cool but I'm afraid I couldn't grasp anything since I'm not a computer science student. The workshop is a month away..I need help to decide how to proceed..Thanks in advance..

    I think you're talking about this:
    http://www.arduino.cc/en/ArduinoCertified/IntelGalileo
    I don't know much about Arduino. But I see this on FAQ
    http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/FAQ

    "In fact, you already are; the Arduino language is merely a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code. Your sketch undergoes minor changes (e.g. automatic generation of function prototypes) and then is passed directly to a C/C++ compiler (avr-g++). All standard C and C++ constructs supported by avr-g++ should work in Arduino. For more details, see the page on the Arduino build process."

    So my guess, it looks like you really need to look into is Arduino, which is a hardware/software system for the IOT, but your C skills should translate just fine. You may not be working in Arduino, but if its IOT you'll be looking at something like it.
