Here are some basic recipes to start off with.
Again there is the expectation here that you should already be decently familiar with basic physical computing concepts using a basic microcontroller platform such as the Arduino UNO. The mote recipes will only present a basic set of examples to get you started.
You can also refer to the Particle recipes for more examples – just like learning a different coding language, once you get the gist of using basic sensors and I2C components you'll find that the technique for wiring everything is pretty similar.
