Sorry if this has been covered before!

 

Microsoft is rolling out a new 'Intelligent Systems Competency' for partners sometime in Q12014.  From the announcement:

 

"As an extension of our cloud commitment, the Intelligent Systems Competency will also launch to enable partners to capitalize on the fast growing opportunity related to the "Internet of Things," and other competencies will have requirement updates to account for new exams to ensure you are confident selling and implementing the newest versions of Microsoft products and services. "

 

Right now, everything points to the Windows Embedded folks. Might there be a role for .NET MicroFramework (and our beloved Netduino) as well?

Hi remotewizard, .NET Micro Framework is a member of Microsoft's Windows Embedded product lineup. It may not be in the first version of the competency, but we should definitely all ping them and voice our support for a NETMF component in the competency.  

Let us know what you think by contacting mswepp@microsoft.com

Thanks for sharing this, Chris P.S. I just e-mailed Microsoft about the new competency, to add to everyone else in the community who is e-mailing them their thoughts.

Hi remotewizard, hi Chris

 

Thanks for taking up this topic!

 

I've also written to Microsoft, and cross-posted on the "other" forum:

 

(Darn, forum software seems broken - cannot paste a link, cannot close the link dialog box, arghhh... Hope I type it in correctly...)
