Microsoft Ignite NZ session with Netduino devices

Last week I did a session about devices at Microsoft Ignite (Formerly TechEd) New Zealand.


I had a lot of kit on stage with 3 Netduinos, 3 Arduinos, and 2 Raspberry PI devices (running Windows 10 IoT Core) featuring in my 3 sets of demos.

First Demo

This demo was about connecting sensors. I showed the different programing models used to read data from an ADXL345 accelerometer

Arduino Uno R3

Netduino 3

Raspberry PI Windows 10 IoT Core

Second Demo

This was about hobbyist devices, wireless connectivity and cloud data services (I used Xively). I had 3 devices, two of which I passed into the audience for them to have a closer look at.

Third Demo

An Azure ServiceBus EventHub (for telemetry) and a ServiceBus queue (for commands). My scenario was a vineyard managing frost fans to stop the crop getting damaged when it gets really cold.

Raspberry PI running Windows 10 IoT Core receiving messages from a queue and turning a small fan on/off

The code for Netduino 3 & RPI was built using Azure Service Bus Lite which worked really well.

I spent too much time preparing & testing but all my demos worked....

All your device are belong to us

So much hype, so many different devices, so many protocols, so much data, so little security, welcome to the Internet of Things. Come and see how you can build an affordable, securable, scalable, interoperable, robust & reliable solution with embedded devices, Windows 10 IoT and Microsoft Azure. By 2020 there will be 26 Billion devices and 4.5 million developers building solutions so the scope is limitless.
