AnduinoWiFi Getting Started

Consider this the "Blinky LED" of the anduinoWiFi shield! Motivation Implementing an IoT prototype utilizing an Arduino that doesn't natively support WiFi can be cumbersome. Sure there are some pretty good options for native support. The MKR1000 natively supports WiFi, but this ease comes at a price. The SAMD21 is essentially half as powerful as the SAM3X8E on the Due. Why not have the best of both worlds? ...
