Manage my wine cellar with QR codes and Microsoft Azure

I have quite “few” bottles of wine. I really do like wine a lot. Yes, I’m French As for any resource you use a lot with lots of new items in and out almost every day, you start to have mistakes in your inventory. That’s what happen naturally to any inventory. And you need to…


Connect Arduino, Spark.IO, Netduino (NETMF .Net Microframework), to Microsoft Azure Mobile Services, create IoT (Part 3)

In the 2 previous articles, we’ve created a local network of objects which communicate sensor information to a more smarter object which will post the information somewhere in the Cloud. Idea is to create a full Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. Those sensors are temperature, humidity (air and soil), wind direction as well as rain….


Connect your Arduino, Spark.IO, Netduino (NETMF .Net Microframework), Galileo to Microsoft Azure (Part 2) to create an Internet of Things (IoT)

In the previous article, I’ve explained that I’ll build an Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure to pilot automatically with sensors and a Microsoft Azure backend my Sprinkler system at home. I’ve also explained a bit the full architecture. In this post, I will explain how I have connected existing objects and make them communicating with…


Connect your Arduino, Spark.IO, Netduino (.Net Microframework), Galileo to Microsoft Azure (Part 1)

Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding. Cost of processors and cost of electronic components is falling, electrical consumption is also getting lower and lower for more and more power. It’s now more than ever becoming to be super easy to create our own objects with some intelligence. Add to this technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy…


.NET Microframework on RaspberryPi (Part 2)

I realize I haven’t posted on my blog the direct link to the porting of .NET Microframework (NETMF) to the RaspberryPi. See previous article. So code is available here: This is not a full port of NETMF natively on RaspberryPi. It’s a port of specific NETMF classes on Mono running on Linux. It can…


Building an Internet of Things garden with Arduino/Netduino/Azure

For those who follow this blog, it’s been a while I haven’t posted anything. Reason of time missing and also because I worked on a new project so documentation of the project was not the priority. But now it’s time to start the documentation and sharing. I gave recently a conference in Kiev to explain…
