The hardware revolution is just beginning. Nest, Ring, Mellow -- these are just the tip of the iceberg. Advances in hardware and software have opened a new world of connected possibilities that extends beyond just the consumer and into the industrial and commercial IoT world. And if you can develop apps, you can build hardware!

Come and get inspired to build your own connected things as the speaker walks through hacking household appliances into connected things that you can control with your phone using Netduino and Xamarin.

Come learn how Netduino.Foundation (http://Netduino.Foundation) makes creating connected things in C# a piece of cake, with a massive library of peripheral drivers for sensors, LCDs, etc., and a handrolled API that makes building smart hardware a plug and play experience.

Wilderness Labs makes Netduino, which is a board that runs .NET MicroFramework applications.

Speaker: Bryan Costanich is a cofounder and CEO of Wilderness Labs; a startup dedicated to making hardware development as fast and easy as software. He was previously Vice President of Education Services at Xamarin, where he created Xamarin University and the Xamarin Documentation team. He's a renowned software architect, published author, mobile development expert, and a seasoned entrepreneur. When not working in tech, you can find Bryan out in the Cascade volcanoes and Sierras (usually hanging from a cliff).
