The Internet of Things and Embedded Development

The Internet of Things is one of the hottest things going right now - but only because it got a new buzzword. This fast-paced talk will demystify the hype surrounding the Thingernet, and introduce you to building your own contributions with the .Net Micro Framework. With copious working code demos, we'll cover everything from the basics of what boards to buy and setting up your environment - to advanced topics like TDD, threading.

He is the creator of MFMock, the open source mock library for the .Net Micro Framework.
