Programming Arduino on Windows 8

Image: Adafruit
I came across this great overview of programming Arduino on Windows 8 Pro and Android tablets: Adafruit Programming Arduino with Android and Windows Tablets

It has a great overview of how to get going with Arduino development using tablets and has good tips about tablet models to avoid due to issues with driver loading on Windows.

For about $200, if you don't have an Android or Windows 8 Pro tablet, you can get started programming Arduino with a tablet without needing to lug around your laptop.  Yes, like lugging a laptop is a big deal (it isn't) but it's always nice to be more portable.

If you want to skip straight to the PDF with the entire article here is the link:
