Fellow .Net Users,

Time for another .NET user group. I am amazed at how many places .NET is showing up these days. Join us this week to hear about one more place you can find .NET running.

One update to add - We just got word that our Host and Sponsor CRi is providing a Raspberry Pi kit. Be sure to RSVP to be included in the drawing!

.Net and Windows 10 on the Raspberry Pi
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a big deal lately. There are a plethora of devices and data stores ready to send and receive your information. From a 8 MHz PIC microcontroller to a 16 MHz Arduino to a NetDuino sporting a 32 bit 168 Mhz processor there is no shortage of hardware possibilities. In this talk we'll take a short tour of the available options and dig into one of the popular platforms for building IoT solutions, the Raspberry Pi. We'll look at how to build software for the device and explore how Windows 10 can be used to leverage everyone's favorite programming paradigm, .Net and XAML built on Microsoft's Universal app infrastructure.
