To get a glimpse of how its done, check out the basic ‘getting started’ guide You can even now use the Netduino on Linux & Mac computer using open source Mono instead of .NET

And its very expandable just like the Arduino! 3rd-party accessories offer pre-built functionality like GPS location, servo control and battery power. Netduino is also pin-compatible with shields. 3rd-party drivers are required for some Arduino shields. Design files included. Netduino is an open source electronics platform. All design files and source code are included. Learn from the designs. Remix, and enjoy the
freedom of open source. Comes with a free microUSB cable and 4 rubber bumpers.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Congrats! Allowing people to use VS/C#/.NET MF while staying Arduino shield compatible might not sound like a big thing but it could be what’s needed to convince mainstream programmers to start hacking hardware. And in terms of debugging support and robustness .NET MF is a huge win. Only downside is the required registration and closed source-ness of VS (Express). But as your history with MS/Kinect API shows, all hope is not lost. Cheers, tamberg

  2. Hi tamberg,

    Thanks for your post! Did you know that you can also build Netduino code using the new Mono C# compiler (on Mac, Linux, and Windows)? This provides an open-source option for programming Netduino. And later this year, we should see the first open-source IDE for Netduino (MonoDevelop).

    Plus you can erase .NET MF and use FreeRTOS, native C/C++, or a number of other open source alternatives if desired.

    All that said, Visual Studio is a wonderful option if you don’t mind its free but closed-source nature…an IDE known and used by millions of programmers.
