I am in the beginnings of a project for which i need to be able to send gyroscopic data through blue tooth. i did some googling and found this device, an nrf51822 board.
Once i got it i realised i had no idea what i'm doing, so i did some research. Now i can connect it to my phone through an app called BLE scanner and read some values on it. But to upload code to it i would need a JTAG device such as the BMP or J-Link?
But do i even need to upload code to it? i can already access all the values that i want to. through the BLE scanner so i should be able to access them with an app that i potentially develop.
Which comes to the next problem. I've never built an app and have no clue where to start let alone using BLE communications.
So i guess what i'm asking is:
Do i need to be able to upload code?
If so what IDE would i use?
And do i need a JTAG device?
Where should i start when developing an app that communicates using BLE?
Thanks for all help.
