Getting Started with TI CC2650 LaunchPad and Contiki

I just bought two TI CC2650 LaunchPads from Mouser, which feature the recently released TI CC2650 System-on-a-Chip (SoC), and I thought I could write a simple tutorial to help people get started with the LaunchPad and Contiki OS on Mac OS X. The CC2650 SoC integrates an ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller together with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and IEEE 802.15.4 radio chip. This SoC brings new opportunities for wireless devices and research.
