In the last chapter, we saw how to host a web server on the Galileo board, and how to use a web server to control our board remotely.
In this chapter, we will build on that and use what we learned to build applications on the Galileo board. We will first see how to use the web server that we created in the previous chapter to create a file-sharing server.
Then, we will use the fact that our board is connected to the Web to learn how to use web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and to interact with web services. We will connect to the Temboo web service to interact with a huge range of APIs. Temboo is a service that makes it really easy to use a wide range of web APIs, without the usual complexity that comes with such projects.
