Light up your Christmas with C# and .NET


Christmas is fast approaching! Are you looking for a small programming challenge over the winter break? Have you thought about controlling your Christmas tree lights with C# and .NET? Or create a tiny, connected data logger that integrates into your company network? Or, anything in between? Well, take a look at MVP Rob Miles’ recent TechEd EMEA TV presentation. Rob will show you how to do both using Microsoft’s .NET Micro Framework and Windows Embedded CE-powered platforms.

You will discover just how easy it is to create connected embedded solutions on a variety of devices using C# and Visual Studio. If you want to rediscover the joy of really making things happen with your code, then this session is for you. If you want to learn more about Microsoft’s .Net Micro Framework, take a look at Rob’s book, Embedded Programming with the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework. The book is co-written with Donald Thompson and published by Microsoft Press. Order the book from Amazon.

MVP Rob Miles is a Computer Science lecturer at the University of Hull where he teaches programming (in C#) and software engineering courses.
