Hello community members,
I currently own a Arduino but being a C# learner, the GHI board seems very interesting!
I do have a few questions regarding those 2 boards (Spider and Raptor)
The main difference between the 2 are processors speeds, one have more PWM, the other a bit less, and a few difference like that. Being an hobbyist, is there a any groundbreaking feature on the Raptor vs the Spider (or the other way around) ?
I was looking at the Netduino as well, but I found out that it does not support SSL. Since I want to use Azure in my project, I do believe this is a must. Does both board (Spider and Raptor) support SSL?
What the support for Azure looks like so far? I believe this is done by the community? Any plan for Microsoft to provide NetMF support for Azure?
Also, those 2 boards uses the Gadgeteer system, which seems to be real nice. Since I already have some electronics components like sensor (TMP36), a bunch of LED, buttons and so on. Is it possible to use the Pin of a Gadgeteer port as a "stand alone pin? If I look at the pictures, I think each port is 10 pins. Could I easily use jumper wire and use a breadboard for Input / Output / vcc / gnd ? Like a Arduino in fact.
Thank you so your help, appreciated.
