In this chapter, we looked at the Beagle board offerings and a few unique features of each offering. Then, we went through the process of setting up a BeagleBone board and understood the basics to access it from a laptop/desktop. By verifying access to the BeagleBone via a web browser and a command line, we built a foundation for the exercises in the upcoming chapters.

With a new board, we also went through a list of some very useful accessories. With the exception of the power adapter for a few people with laptops/desktops that strictly enforce power limits, none of the accessories are required for the exercises in this book. You can proceed through the rest of the book while the accessories are ordered.

In the next chapter, we will look at system software in the BeagleBone along with the process of flashing a new image onto the BeagleBone.
