The makers of two collaborating Open Source projects--the .NET Micro Framework and the Netduino electronics platform--talk about how you can easily create connected devices using a RESTful interface and standard Web technologies. Come see how you can try out your own connected device solutions for under a hundred dollars using the same tools and skills that are used on the desktop.

Always wanted to create hardware devices that can interact with the real world? Heard about the Arduino electronics prototyping platform but not sure how to get started? When you attend this workshop you will: set up an Arduino board & software; learn how the Arduino fits into the field of physical computing; and make your Arduino respond to button presses and blink lights. Hardware is fun!
