The Intel Developer Program for Internet of Things launches today as a comprehensive program to aid hobbyists, students and entrepreneurial developers by giving them the resources needed to turn ideas into applications, and then introduce those apps into the market. The program, accessible at software.intel.com/IoT, will host 20 events in 2014 in which members are invited to participate to gain access to one of 5,000 Intel® Galileo Development Kits for IoT. The kits include software tools and an Intel® Galileo Arduino development board on which to test and build apps. Hackathon participants are also eligible to participate in the Internet of Things Explorer Challenge to win prizes such as a Polar expedition, a Himalayas Heli safari tour or a Seven Wonders of the World tour.
