Hello everyone

I am new here and wanted to say hello. I usually do programming in
windows using C++ and now I'm about to learn Linux (new to me) and
Linux programming. I think it's also C++ (or is it C?). Anyhow, I will
browse around and read as much as I can.

If anyone has any advice or tips for me to speed things up, I would
appreciate it very much. Perhaps some books or video (over and above
what is on the beagle board web site). My goal is to use the board and
interface with devices using BACnet protocol.

I will be ordering the board today.

Thank you in advance.
