For past few months I am working on a project based around Meadow platform that allows .NET programming for IoT. Greatest thing about it – it is programmable using full .NET Standard, so almost any .NET developer can easily just gram one, learn some platform specific basics and start being productive very soon, even without prior IoT experience. It’s extremely easy to write (assuming you know C# of course) and allows usage of most .NET goodies you might want – events, threads, asynchronous programming? LINQ? Networking? Whatever you might want – if you can do it in console app you probably can do it here to!
Obviously there is also a lot of specific stuff too. There must be classes for example to control hardware – but in principal they work as usual .NET stuff, and there is a lot of APIs for different devices already in Meadow Foundation. But what to do if you bought device and there is no driver for it yet?Read more “Programming I2C drivers with Meadow”
