Tampa Bay – .NET Micro Framework Development Group

Today I’m announcing the first meeting for the Tampa Bay – .NET Micro Framework Development group on Thursday October 18th, 2012 at the Microsoft Office in Tampa.
If you’re interested in learning more about controlling hardware for software, even if you have no experience, please join us!  You can read more about the .NET Micro Framework.
These will be the primary goals of the first six months or so of the meetings (which are open for discussion):
  • Setting up development environment, the hardware and software you will need.
  • Very basic digital electronics, how to flash an LED, how devices and components talk together.
  • Communicating with a Windows 8 and Windows Phone front end.
These meetings will be part “lecture” where we’ll discuss some basic concepts and potentially do some hands-on exercises as well as “show-and-tell” that will let folks do quick demos of fun stuff they are working on.
To start out with, we will be working with the first generation Netduino, so if you are interested in hands-on participation, you might want to order one of these before coming to our meeting.
Even if you have zero experience, but have an interest in this kind of stuff, please come and join us!  It really is an awesome experience bringing hardware to life with the software you write.

  2. .NET Micro Framework broadens the potential and adaptability of .NET Development to embedded devices. Desktop programmers can now create applications that run on a range of systems from tiny devices.
