Is there any thinker board emulator or simulator for linux?
#1
I need to start programming for Tinker Board using Tinker OS. 

I come from a software background using high level languages ... I am not  too bad with c++ and linux. 

Just curious if there is any tinker os emulator so I don't need use an actual board ....(sth. like Oracle VM virtual box.)

Thank you,

Nope. The best what you can have is a generic ARM emulator. If your programing will include board specific hw functions you can forget about. There is no such thing - you will need to create one or just code on the board.
Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

Qemu gets a bit close to that, but not entirely.

I would suggest just writing your program so it works in Debian. Unless you really do something special it will build and run on Tinker OS as well.

You may develop you thing on another linux box upto completion. Then transfer it to TB. As jschwart suggest, it preferable if you'll use a debian based distro to develop your program (less incongruence). Beware of kind of timing or heavy load conditions that may vary when going to the TB.
