just joined this forum, and hopefully I can make some friends in the community.
I am very to new to .NETMF, after reading through the “Beginner guide to NETMF”, I don’t understand the concept of .NET Gadgeteer.
I quote the codeplex page,
“Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer is an open-source toolkit for building small electronic devices using the .NET Micro Framework and Visual Studio or Visual C# Express. .NET Gadgeteer combines the advantages of object-oriented programming, solderless assembly of electronics with a kit of peripherals, and support for quick form-factor construction using computer-aided design.”
Isn’t .NETMF already allowed us debug program using VS and deploy application to electronic devices?? Sorry if this question is too noobish.
In the beginner guide, it suggested me to download GHI software package from http://www.ghielectronics.com/support/.net-micro-framework , but I can not find any download link.
The idea I have in mind, is a gps info system, record gps data, send to server(3g maybe?), and some web app process the data stored on server and display it through web UI. Pretty much like the one is this thread http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/topic?id=10990&page=1 , but no need for on board display.
Is it too hard for beginners? I don’t seem to be able to find any tutorials.
