In case you have a wilderness labs meadow and want to try it, here is a good walk through on how to start coding. No debugging yet but they say it is coming soon… and they have added SQLite
why they do not use
GHI TinyClr 2.0 ready for use
well, they are not at the GHI level but at least they give another opportunity for c# enthousiast for using their favorite language in the iot world. That’s already a good starting point. … waiting for the debugging to test
I’ve got one and have tested it for some time.
Lack of debug is not that dramatic, to me. Of course it is a needed feature but we can leave without for some time.
There are at least two other major problems, however : performances and form factor.
It’s a pile of different software layers, each one slowing down the other. This could have been masked if they had used a H7 but they are using a F7.
Form factor is annoying, to me. It does not expose enough pins to be really useful, to me.
All in all, this is a nice try to get full .Net on an embedded device but, as is, it is not a viable solution. At least that’s my opinion
I tried the Meadow for an application I am working on. Interrupt response time was toooooo slow.
They are getting better with each beta release, but when will they be production ready?
I don’t understand how they are developing without being able to attach a debugger. It boggles my mind. Soon the Octavo MP1 will be mainstream, then what will they do.
