Getting Started with the Internet of Things Book

O’Reilly Media just put up its latest book on program embedded devices using the .NET Micro Framework and the Netduino Plus board. If your thinking about trying your hand at .NET it might be a good read for you.

 

The Internet of Things consists of billions of embedded computers, sensors, and actuators all connected online. If you have basic programming skills, you can use these powerful little devices to create a variety of useful systems. This hands-on guide shows you how to start building your own fun and fascinating projects. All you need is a Netduino Plus, a USB cable, a couple of sensors, an Ethernet connection to the Internet—and your imagination.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. This is nice. But I somehow hate working with microsoft products. BTW, your captcha is also too good 🙂

  2. What might not work for you might be the right for the next person. That’s the beauty of having multiple options to choose from. 🙂
