+## Building
+Apache Blinky contains an example Apache Mynewt application called blinky.  This application
blinks an LED on the host board.  The below procedure describes how to build this application
for the Apache Mynewt simulator.
+1. Download Apache Newt.
+You will need to download the Apache Newt tool, as documented in the [Getting Started Guide](
+2. Build the blinky app for the sim platform using the "my_blinky_sim" target
+(executed from the blinky directory).
+    $ newt build my_blinky_sim

the simulator does not have an LED to blink, this version of blinky is not terribly exciting
(no observable behavior!).  To learn how to build blinky for actual harder, please see the
[Getting Started Guide](
