Topic: Hands on Hacknight connecting Netduino's to an Azure cloud service
This is not a sit back and watch the speaker meeting. As a participant in this project you will be building the devices that complete a Simulated Home Security system. There will be some basic code that is written for you but for the most part it will be your job to complete the code and make the device functional. The cloud service that connects all the devices via a message bus will already be completed and deployed to Windows Azure for you to use. Your device will publish and subscribe to messages on the bus.
There will be a limited number of Netduino's available for you to use, but if you have your own Netduino Plus you can bring that as well. Since time is limited you will need to come to the meeting prepared.
I will announce what is needed on your laptop soon. Also this meeting will have limited space so register early.
A couple links for you:
Home Security - This is the Azure hosted web site that all the devices will connect to. Keep watching this site as I build it out for the meeting.
Netduino Plus - Some specifications on the hardware we will be using.
Windows Azure Compute Services - I will be using a Worker Role and a Web Site, and you can check out this link for some easy tutorials on building apps on these services.
