Publisher Comments:

The Internet of Things is the new generation of devices that serve as the Internet's interface to the physical world. Today's tiny microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators are powerful, inexpensive, and simple enough to code that anyone with basic programming skills can create a variety of fun, useful, and even profitable systems — such as devices that detect and extinguish fires or automatically water plants when the soil becomes too dry. This hands-on introductory guide will quickly show you how it's done.

You'll learn how to program embedded devices using the .NET Micro Framework and the Netduino Plus board, and then connect these devices to the Internet using Pachube, a cloud platform for sharing real-time sensor data. Getting Started with the Internet of Things briefly introduces the tools and then walks you though several techniques for using them, using a series of C# examples:

  • Develop programs that demonstrate the use of simple outputs (actuators) and inputs (sensors)
  • Build client programs that show how measurements can be pushed to an existing Web service
  • Create server programs that provide Web services to clients on the Web
  • Develop a program that is both client and server and runs in the cloud
  • Get .NET classes and methods needed to implement all of the book's examples

Synopsis:

What is the Internet of Things? It's billions of embedded computers, sensors, and actuators all connected online. If you have basic programming skills, you can use these powerful little devices to create a variety of useful systems—such as a device that waters plants when the soil becomes dry. This hands-on guide shows you how to start building your own fun and fascinating projects.

Learn to program embedded devices using the .NET Micro Framework and the Netduino Plus board. Then connect your devices to the Internet with Pachube, a cloud platform for sharing real-time sensor data. All you need is a Netduino Plus, a USB cable, a couple of sensors, an Ethernet connection to the Internet—and your imagination.

  • Develop programs with simple outputs (actuators) and inputs (sensors)
  • Learn about the Internet of Things and the Web of Things
  • Build client programs that push sensor readings from a device to a web service
  • Create server programs that allow you to control a device over the Web
  • Get the .NET classes and methods needed to implement all of the book's examples

Synopsis:

Cloud Computing is here to stay. As an economically viable way for businesses of all sizes to distribute computing, this technology shows tremendous promise. But the intense hype surrounding the Cloud is making it next to impossible for responsible IT managers and business decision-makers to get a clear understanding of what the Cloud really means, what it might do for them, when it is practical, and what their future with the Cloud looks like.

The Cloud at Your Service helps cut through all this fog to help enterprises make these critical decisions based on facts and the authors' informed unbiased recommendations and predictions.
