I have tried several popular wireless single board computer offerings in the DIY space. Starting with Arduino, Electric Imp, Galileo to more industrial IoT solutions. You can read my reviews on my blog http://bentuino.com . The Spark is by far my favorite. It is small, offers a powerful 32-bit CPU, is energy efficient, fully open source and comes with a remarkable software environment.
One of the main reasons you should look at Spark is the ease to port Arduino Sketches and extend them to be fully web connected.
It only takes 5 min. to get a Spark core going. Spark Lab offers a Web based IDE, so you don't have to spend time installing software on your PC. In fact you can use your phone or tablet to program the core.
Cloud integration is included and free for life.
