Next Meeting

February 9th, 2015

Speaker: Matthew Reily
Topic: Intro to IoT using .NET Micro Framework and Netduino
Summary: What is this IoT thing I keep hearing about? How can I get started making these "things"? If you have a desire to tinker with stuff and make them blink, move, and respond to physical inputs plus love you some .NET, then this talk is for you. We will go over what IoT is and how you can use your .NET skills to get started immediately.
We will discuss the Netduino device and what it can do. This talk will also give a quick intro into Azure websites and how we can leverage them in our devices. We will also go into a brief discussion of the .NET micro framework and some of the limitations you might encounter.
This talk will include several demos of projects using the .NET micro framework, Netduino devices, and Azure services.
