Small electronics and hardware fascinate me. Life as a .NET mobile developer is incredible, but if you're anything like me, you still want to work with your hands from time-to-time. I've wanted to tinker with Raspberry Pi and Arduino for ages, but never knew where to start or how to apply the skills I have. The answer was right in front of me!
Let me share how my love for building mobile apps opened up the world of microcontrollers. You'll see how I got started working with my first Arduino board and some of the incredibly fun and useful ways you can interact with microcontrollers from your own mobile apps. I'll even bring hardware to show it in action! I hope to inspire new projects for you, your family, or your job. I'm not a microcontroller maker wizard, but come hang with us if you want to learn how to take your .NET skills to start hacking against hardware.
