I’m at the MVP Global Summit in Bellevue, WA, sitting in the Gadgeteer/NETMF lab. This is something I proposed this year and happily has turned out to be a hit with attendees.
It has turned out to be more popular than I could have expected. There are three lab sessions in a row, each with great turnout with lots of folks geeking out. The first session was standing room only.
Tons of people making their first digital cameras and more. Lots of love for NETMF 4.2 being 40% community contributed, OSS as well.
[Gus: Many of the overseas attendees have said they want to get the Gadgeteer over in Europe, but import duties are too high. They’ve asked for local distribution (Italy, Germany, Bulgaria etc.) as otherwise you can’t compete with Arduino and even Android tablets.]
From my own experience, I know event coordinators hesitate to allow NETMF sessions at their events, as it doesn’t seem “serious” (I submit to every event I speak at). Be sure to ask for NETMF/Gadgeteer sessions at your code camps, TechEd, regional events and more.
Oh, and I just saw the Cerebus announcement. Awesome!
I’ll post photos later.
