The Intel Edison is a tiny computer-on-module offered by Intel as a development system for wearable devices and Internet of Things devices.
It was launched at CES in January 2014.
The Edison packs a host of features, including the two most widely-used connectivity options
To interact with sensors and actuators on Edison devices (or any supported device), Intel® provides the Libmraa. Libmraa allows you to read data from sensors and actuators in a standard way
Ofcourse, an Intel Edison kit and a computer (which runs either of Windows 64-bit, Windows 32-bit, OSX, Linux) ready for Edison development.

Intel® Edison compute module to the Arduino expansion board
So this is the tiny computer we were talking about
Press down on the Intel® Edison compute module just below the words “What will you make?” until you feel a snap.
To many slots?

Instructions are provided in the following links
Open up the Edison-specific Arduino software. This software is nearly indistinguishable from other Arduino builds.
Go up to the File > Examples > Basics > menu and select blink
Go up to the Tools > Board menu and select Intel® Edison
A ton of options before you deploy code onto board.
Watch the following videos to get access to Edison shell.
Configure your Edison with the help of following links.
To configure your edison
To configure your wifi
The Edison will scan for nearby wireless networks, after a few seconds it will list the results. Type a number to pick an SSID.
Enter your passkey and wait for it to (try to) connect.
The last line of the configure utility will prompt you to open your browser and point to the Edison’s local IP.
