One Line Summary

lighting up a new board brings together a lot of interesting talent, and has a lot of challenges.


I’ve just experienced my first power on and we had to get creative to debug and work around a number of hardware and software issues to get the system to come up to a semi usable state. I would like to know how common this experience is, and if yours was worse than mine ;)
