As some of you may or may not know for the last year I have been moonlighting a few days a week at Microsoft Research in Cambridge contracting to the team that created Gadgeteer amongst other interesting projects. This has allowed me to come into contact with other NETMF focused individuals within Microsoft which in turn allows for some interesting brainstorming and what if’s conversations.
So since in my humble opinion i believe NETMF is a great fit for a slice of the IoT boom I bounced some ideas with a fellow chappie inside MS and a plan was hatched…
In collaboration with Microsoft DX Lead in Morocco, who wanted to create something to get his developers excited about the IoT to help spring a new way to promote Job creation, by using NETMF and MS technology to help start ups… meet IoT DX Blue - hopefully the first of a line of IoT focused NETMF boards.
