After some startup problems I finally have two Sparks working.
Just doing over the air firmware updates using the web based Spark Build IDE take 1 minute 20 seconds for even the simplest (Flash LED) example. Thats really long compared to my “old school” Arduino Uno etc. experience - granted that was over a cable, but should it really take this long or is something wrong or misconfigured on my end ?
Is it because it is literally reflashing the WHOLE firmware instead of just the few bytes that represent my trivial sample program ? Why would that be necessary ? Seems that slowness could make development iterations more tedious than expected ?
