There are many many guides to this on the internet.
Here is the tutorial I used to get it working.
Biggest issue here is the level conversion. A normal Arduino runs on 5V the Electric Imp runs on 3.3V
Please note: There are a lot of guides to "level shift hacks" out there, and not all are safe to use.
If you have little electronics knowledge, I recommend you get a "proper" level shifter from someone like Sparkfun.
I solved it by just powering the Arduino from the 3.3V output on the Electric Imp Breakout Board.
The Arduino works fine on 3.3V, but there is probably a limit to how many mA you can draw from the Imp Breakout Board.
Use at your own risk.
There are many good tutorials for this at the internet too. Watch out for old ones, though. Electric Imp recently changed the IDE, and if you find any confusing references to "The Planner" - The example you are reading is old and most likely obsolete.
Open.Sen.Se is still in beta and you have to ask for a developer access.
Open.Sen.Se has gone to greath lengths to make it easy to connect sensors and stuff. The Imp, though, is not specifically mentioned, but the code examples here should help you on.
