The Dallas .NET Micro User Group focuses on the .NET Micro Framework (NETMF) from Microsoft. The group meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month at Improving Enterprises and our meetings are free to attend. Please RSVP according to the monthly meeting announcement to assure plenty of food and drinks for everyone.


What is NETMF?

.NET Micro Framework (NETMF) is an open source platform that expands the power and versatility of .NET to the world of small embedded applications. Desktop programmers can harness their existing .NET knowledge base to bring complex embedded concepts to market on time (and under budget).  Embedded Developers can tap into the massive productivity gains that have been seen on the Desktop.

One of the key values of .NET is in handling complex projects. This next project is a good example of this. The project is a control system for domestic and industrial underfloor heating. The system allows each room to be defined as a separately controlled...(read more)

As we promised a few months ago, we are continuing our commitment to cleaning up the NETMF API, documentation, and all other resources. Please see the earlier news post for further details. The following changes will help in isolating old material that may not apply to the latest locked 4.3 SDK.

* EDIT *
Starting today, all old General Discussion/NETMF/Gadgeteer forum posts dated prior to 1/1/2015 have been moved to a new forum section called "Archive". You can still reply to these posts but we recommend starting new topics.

As for codeshare, all posts created and last updated prior to 1/1/2015 will show a warning on top saying "This contribution is outdated. Code may need to be changed to reflect the latest API. Please see the documentation for the latest API". This is where the community can greatly help. If you use one of the codeshare contributions and have it tested with 4.3, please post the update to codeshare. Doing so will automatically remove the "outdated" notice, since the update happened after 1/1/2015.

The documentation has been updated for a few months. If you see something wrong, please click on the "leave feedback" and let us know how we can improve the page. We are also looking into opening the documentation to our advanced users so they can add their own pages or improve upon the information as it is presented.

The FEZ Spider Starter Kit was the first .NET Gadgeteer compatible kit on the market. Since it's introduction in 2011, it has been very popular and will continue to be a part of our offerings, however we thought we would give it a little face lift.

The new kit is called FEZ Spider Tinker Kit, which includes modules similar to the FEZ Cerberus Tinker Kit. This similarity allows us to provide a unified Gadgeteer customer experience. This unified experience will allow you start with either kit and upgrade or downgrade as needed.

This new kit is available for the super low price of under $160. While low on cost it is not low on features! The kit includes all of the modules found in the FEZ Cerberus Tinker Kit while also including a 3.5" touch display instead of the smaller 1.8" display, and also includes an Ethernet Module for your networking needs. Let's not forget about the included Holey Board that will allow you to keep your modules neat and organized!

Please keep in mind that the FEZ Spider is based on GHI's EMX System on Module. This automatically provides powerful functionality such as native WiFi and PPP for the internet of Things, along with other features such as SQLite databases as well as RLP for loading native-time-critical libraries.

So join us today in introducing and welcoming the FEZ Spider Tinker Kit into the GHI family!
