Speeding up my blog

So last year I wanted to create a blog. I started looking around on the world wide web and found a pretty simple default solution called BlogEngine.NET. BlogEngine.NET is build on (obviously) the .NET Framework, contains both a frontend as a backend administrative part and is completely free. So I downloaded it and installed it on my Azure environment. After a few moments I was up and running and ready to write my first post.


IoT - Gadgeteer - Setting the preferred temperature

It’s been a while, but I’ve pulled my project from under the dust and started cleaning up some code by doing a refactor.
I noticed my code got a bit messy so I applied some Design Pattern strategies to it. I’ll save you the details because it’s not really relevant to the Gadgeteer project.

So to continue, in my previous blog I added an observable display and made sure we could see what was going on.
Now it’s time to interact with the device so we can actually set a preferred temperature, which is actually the main purpose of a thermostat.

IoT - Gadgeteer - An Observering Display

In my previous blog I added a temperature and humidity sensor to the Gadgeteer project.
On every ‘TimerTick’ we asked the sensor to give us the current values and we wrote them to the Output Windows in Visual Studio.
In this blog we’re going to add a display and write the values to the display instead. We will also be implementing our first Design Pattern; The Observer Pattern.

IoT - Gadgeteer - Adding a sensor module

I finally got my hands on a temperature / humidity sensor for the Gadgeteer board. This means I can continue the quest for building a smart thermostat.
In this blog part I’ll show you how to attach a sensor module and read the values from the sensor.

IoT - Gadgeteer - Getting started

In this blog series I want to show you how to get started with the Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer module.
I’ll take you through all the steps required to start you own Internet of Things (IoT) project. In this first blog we’ll set up the environment and create our first application.
