In the first recipe of this chapter, we are going to see how to use the XDK software. XDK was created by Intel to create apps on the Galileo board by using the Node.js framework. You won't have to use any terminal or command lines; everything is done from the XDK graphical interface.
You should see a window similar to this:
Your Galileo board should already be up and running with the Intel IoT image, and connected to your local network. If you cannot see your board at this point inside the XDK interface, just create a new blank project and it should trigger the board discovery process.
