I’m a newbie to FEZ but have been a hobbyist programmer with .NET for the past few years…
I was thinking about writing an application using the FEZ Cobra board and have a few questions:
I would like to have a device that basically will listen for external events… either by hitting a web service, querying a SQL database, or some other mechanism, that will then sound the Piezo until a button is pressed.
I think I understand what needs to be done to sound the Piezo device and wire-up an event or whatnot for the button. But:
Can code from the Cobra execute a SQL query for a SQL 2005/2008 or whatever database remotely? So I’m looking for something in SQL? I see it support SQL-lite, but I don’t want a local database. If so, is there sample code for this?
WIth the onboard Ethernet, can I host a simple web server that perhaps can listen for POST/GET type messages to trigger an event, such as Piezo? If so, is there sample code for this?
Can I write code to execute a POST/GET against an external web service looking for something? If so, is there sample code for this?
Any help would be appreciated before I make an investment to play…
