I need to buy this board and the starter kit to begin with IoT. But I can't find where to get one here in Colombia, everyone sells arduino boards but not intel.
I would like to ask please, if I can use Node.js in Intel boards?
Thank you very much.
Have you tried with this link: https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/do-it-yourself/maker-retailer-listing.html https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/do-it-yourself/maker-retailer-listing.html
About nodejs, yes you can use it in your board. Once you have the board you can use the EGLIBC image from: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads IoT - Intel® Galileo Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone
Thanks CMata_Intel, I found that there isn't any suppliers in my country, but will try to reach the nearest.
One last question please . Will these starter kits for arduino work on intel gen2/edison?

Thanks in advanced.
Take a look at the http://download.intel.com/support/Galileo-Edison_ShieldTestReport_330937-002.pdf Shield Testing Report you will see in there all the shields that have been officially tested.
In the link you posted, I couldn't see the name and the ICs of all the modules/shields.
You shouldn't have problems with that kit but if you have, the problem could be with the libraries. The kit in the link, is for Arduino and I'm guessing that some of those devices use libraries for AVR/Arduino and not for x86/Galileo. Some of the libraries might work but some of them may not so you will need to modify the library or create your own one.
