Hey team,

I'm pretty excited about this year's Build conference (this week in San Francisco).

Here is one session that I'm particularly enthusiastic about, streamed live at 1pm PDT (20:00 UTC) today:

P.S. Official announcement regarding the new Netduino SDK for Azure is a few posts down in this thread.

I had bookmarked that session because of the Netduino connection.  Looking forward to it and the news!

Hmm, it looks like Channel9 is only streaming one session at a time, so "What's New for ASP.NET and Web in Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 and Beyond" is going to be on Channel9 at that time.

The session should be recorded, though, and live in 24-48 hours.

Yes, the IoT session will be online later this week. Worth watching for sure :)

While we're waiting for the session video to post...

Here's some info about the Netduino-powered Traffic Light that Steve Teixeira showcased in the IoT session:
http://forums.netdui...-traffic-light/

It also hooks up to a Bitcoin service on Azure...showing real-value changes in Bitcoin value :)

Tons of kudos to both the IoT team at Microsoft and to our very own roguemat for putting this together!

More news to come later this week...

The video and slides from the Build IoT session are now live.
http://channel9.msdn...uild/2014/2-511

The big base of that "IoT devices" pyramid targets .NET Micro Framework. :)

Microsoft's Steve Teixeira announced that Microsoft is doubling down on NETMF, increasing their investment in key areas.

Key areas where Microsoft is investing in NETMF:
1. Increase .NET MF runtime performance
2. Introduce modern .NET language features to .NET MF (generics and more!)
3. Faster support for the latest Visual Studio releases

The official announcement is at 15:36 in the video.

Chris

P.S. The day 2 keynote just reiterated the new level of investment in NETMF, generics, etc. :)

Hi Chris

 

Do you know how far this will affect the HAL layer? Hope we don't have to throw away everything...

Azure SDK for Netduino?  Does this mean HTTPS is coming?

Hi Cuno,

Do you know how far this will affect the HAL layer? Hope we don't have to throw away everything...

The HAL is pretty well abstracted from the interpreter, etc. so I do not expect any requirements for major changes to chip BSPs short-term. That said: Microsoft is increasing their engineering investment in NETMF...so anything could happen :) TBD.

Regading Netduino SDK for Windows Azure, I hope that there will be support for Service Bus but I hope that it isn't based on HTTP or HTTPS .... HTTP isn't for IoT ... there are more other protocols that are focused on it like AMQP (already supported on Service Bus), MQTT, CoAP and so on ...

What are the sockets on the Intel "Sharks Cove" board?  I guess I'll have to wait for the Build 2014 session at 2pm PST.

A few quick notes on the upcoming Netduino SDK for Azure (which Steve Teixeira mentioned in his IoT session)...

The Netduino SDK for Azure is something we're building in parallel to other Azure/IoT devtools work that's happening at Microsoft. Microsoft is in a "ship early and ship often" mode regarding IoT at the moment, and the Netduino SDK for Azure will follow that same strategy.

The first release of the SDK (June 2014) will focus on enabling developers to connect their Netduino projects to--and sync sensor data with--the Azure cloud. That cloud can act as a data storage/aggregation mechanism; it can also act as an intelligent data analysis engine, taking actions based on that data.

As the SDK evolves, we will be enabling support for additional Azure functionality. This is not a single-version SDK, but rather part of our larger strategy to enable makers to build amazing Internet-connected electronics.

To use the new SDK, we recommend using a Netduino Plus 2. The SDK will be open source, so you can also use it with other NETMF hardware. We want to help you go from prototype to production with NETMF and Azure.

Some more exciting news: beyond June, and in collaboration with the talented engineers at Xamarin, we will be providing tools to interact with your Netduino-powered IoT device from your Windows, Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices. All using C# and portable code.

This is going to be a fun year :)

Chris

P.S. if you haven't taken a look at Azure recently...it has turned into a pretty amazing "cloud OS", now with real-time debugging from Visual Studio. There's some mind blowing stuff there.

I'm anxiously waiting for news from Microsoft about the future of netMF.  I just learned that C# is now open-source.  Hopefully embracing open-source means more love for netMF.

Microsoft talked about the future of NETMF twice this week at Build. They're doubling down, investing in a few key areas: enhanced performance, modern language features (generics support, etc.) and integration with the latest Visual Studio tools.

NETMF is also the platform of choice for building low-cost and battery-operated, cloud-connected gadgets. See Netduino SDK for Azure, above.

Exciting times...

Chris

Hello!

When does it get released? I can understand using a NP2 device but there were no release dates on that site. Oh and the Windows On Devices site mentions running something on the platform named for the Italian who confirmed the obvious about our planet.

Hello Dr.,

The first Netduino SDK for Azure release is scheduled for June 2014. As mentioned during Build, there is parallel work happening for Windows on low-end x86 PC-class hardware as well (for more expensive, mains-powered IoT devices).

Hello!

Okay. Now as for the thing named for an Italian scientist who was right, I went to that site, and promptly registered. It will be interesting to see if they get back to me, such as offering the thing to me, or what. I might even buy one......

 

This does not explain why there is an individual who has lousy taste in clothing, and has someone with him dressed as a Highlander outside the physical address of your firm........
