February 2012 Meeting

Get started with the .NET Micro Framework and Netduino

Are you frustrated with being constrained to writing applications that just flip bits in memory and write to disk? Do you need to monitor atmospheric conditions in an undisclosed remote location or interface directly with industrial manufacturing equipment? Are you a sentient AI that is ready to move forward with your plan to control the human race?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should attend this presentation!

Ben will give an overview of the .NET Micro Framework and the basic electronic components that you can use to begin building your robot army today. He will discuss the Netduino microcontroller, an affordable open-source hardware platform that makes it easy to get started. Finally, he will give a glimpse into what is possible once you can control things in the physical world and provide resources so that you can make 2012 the year that you finally realize your dreams of global domination.
