Yesterday, I got my kit with the Intel Galileo board with "Windows for IoT" and of course, as a child who has a new toy in his hands, I started to play !
The easiest thing is to follow the online documentation, accessible from the official Windows On Devices website, which describes step by step how to be "up and running" in a few minutes. My desire to do drove me to make a "mistake" that didn’t allow me to finish the procedure correctly. What happened ?
After turning on the Galileo, connecting it to the PC and browsing through the folders (both with a telnet session as "network shared"), I decided to develop the first example for the blinking LED. I opened Visual Studio 2013, selected the C++ project template for Windows for IoT, and finallty started the build without any changes but .... here was the error !
Arduino.h file not found ? How it is possible ? Isn’t it installed with the SDK that we have to download from the Microsoft Connect site ? No, it isn&rsqu ...

This time the M2Mqtt library has undergone some "important" changes in terms of new features and bug fixing. I have to admit that the improvements are mainly due to the people who use it and report me to add new features or bugs to fix. In addition to several issues reported on CodePlex, this time also Clemens Vasters, PM on Microsoft Azure, submitted some improvements to be applied in the context of SSL / TLS authentication. In fact, as already tweeted several weeks ago, Clemens used my library to run tests on the Reykjavik project (Device Gateway) presented at Build in 2014 and I can only be honored.
In this case, the improvement is closely related to the .Net Framework version, since it is the only version to support what has been added. In particular, the MqttClient class makes available other constructors which can provide the following callbacks :
RemoteCertificateValidationCallback : allows the user to execute further checks on the validation of the ...
Although it was announced immediately after the Build 2014 and O'Reilly Solid , the "Windows Developer Program for IoT" was officially started yesterday !
The announcement was made by the program manager, Steve Teixeira, on the Windows blog highlighting the launch of the new Windows Developer for IoT portal and the beginning of the shipping of the evaluation kit consisting of the Intel Galileo board with a specific version of Windows that supports the Arduino APIs and a subset of the Win32 API.
Also, on the Microsoft Open Technologies website it is specified that the SDK will soon be released in part as open source.
For those who were already enrolled in the program, they have to wait for the kit that will arrive at home very soon but can start to take a tour on the new portal that already provides all the information related to SDK with the sample applications !
After I wrote the article about the Node-RED installation with a Web Site in Microsoft Azure, I decided to start another "small" open source project closely related to the "flow-based programming" with Node-RED using the Microsoft Azure services.
Starting from Azure SDK for Node.js I am asked myself the following question: why not make available to the Node-RED users all the Microsoft Azure services in their "flows" ?
From there I had a new project idea : Azure Nodes !
This project, available on GitHub, adds a bunch of nodes ("azure" colored) to the Node-RED toolbox through which you can interact with the Microsoft Azure services. The current version is still in Beta and it supports only the Service Bus features (queue and topic / subscription) very useful in the Internet of Things, I love.
The documentation is available in the Wiki pages related to the project even if the use of the nodes is remarkably simple and intuitive.
There are still many (too much ?) debug messages displayed ...
