Last month I developed a lot and I had the pleasure of being speaker to three national events and an international one in California (but from remote).I was greatly involved to write code and content that I decided to summarize hoping that you could enjoy them.
With the slides I tried to describe the most important features of the Azure Service Bus focusing on the Event Hubs and its use within the telemetry pattern in IoT :Event Hubs : million events per second to the Cloud (MEC Internet of Things Conference 2015 in Naples)Event Hubs : million events per second to the Cloud (Global Azure Bootcamp, OC community California) of which it is also available the video here on YouTubeMicrosoft e l’IoT (M2M Forum in Milan, session with Roberto Andreoli and Erica Barone from Microsoft Italia)Azure Service Bus : under the hood (IoT Day in Venice)These slides have related demos where I used my last Azure SB Lite library, thanks to which you can access to the Microsoft Azure Service Bus using the same API of the "o ...

Developing a new library for accessing to the Microsoft Azure Service Bus (event hubs, queues, topics / subscriptions) based on AMQP (and AMQP .Net Lite library) I came across a bug in the code of the regular expression in the .Net Micro Framework.
The bug occurred by chance, when I had a "connection string" in which there was the "SharedAccessSignature" field that has a value when we use the AMQP connection with CBS (Claim Based Security); for example when we publish to a "publisher" endpoint in the event hubs with a SAS-based security token.
Now … I can write something !!
About two weeks ago I received a great present from Secret Labs (thanks to Chris Walker) … the new Netduino 3 Wi-Fi board !
Few days ago Microsoft was included in the ranking of the 10 most innovative companies of 2015 as part of the Internet of Things and this result can not be absolutely considered a case. Most likely, the main reasons that have enabled Microsoft to achieve this great result are two :
The announcement of an operating system like Windows 10 that is able to run on any kind of device, from embedded systems, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and finally to the PC;
The wide Microsoft Azure cloud services offer through which you can "accommodate" and analyze in real time the huge amount of data from the "things";
The Microsoft offer for the Internet of Things covers everything from embedded device (the "T") to the Cloud (the "I") failing to provide a solution under one "hat".
What are the available technologies ? How can we really "bring" our "things" in the Cloud and make them an integral part of the Internet of "Your" Things as it was renamed by Microsoft ...
The first "visible" step of the new .Net Micro Framework has been accomplished ... finally the official repository for the future versions is GitHub; viceversa all previous versions of the framework will remain onCodePlex as the forum. Each bug/issue reported on CodePlex will be evaluated and included as "work item" on GitHub.
Due to the "interpreter" nature of the runtime, the project was named ".Net Micro Framework Interpreter" but contains the interpreter, the BCL (Base Class Library) and the native code for porting.
One of the biggest initiatives of 2014 was definitely the birth of DotNetPodcast, podcast completely in Italian and dedicated to Microsoft technologies. Guests are always of the highest level and earlier this year, I had the honor of being able to record an episode, completely dedicated to the Internet of Things and the development of IoT solutions using the .Net Micro Framework.
After about a month of work during my free time, it's finally time to release the new version of the M2Mqtt library (126.96.36.199) and the related GnatMQ broker (0.9.3.0 Beta) with the MQTT OASIS 3.1.1specification support (in addition to some bug fixes).
This time another new and exciting experience as speaker … at Community Days 2014 in Rome with all Microsoft italian communitis !
For the first time, I had the honour to have a session with me “big” friend Valter Minute, from which you never stop learning something new. Of course, the topic was the Internet of Things and this time with a washing machine as protagonist !
News, news … news !
The waiting is over ! The first news of the new life of .Net Micro Framework have been announced publicly yesterday with the new SDK R2 Beta release for the 4.3 version.
This time, with great honor, I will be among the speakers of the Community Days 2014 to be held September 23 to 25 in Rome, after I was there more times as attendee in the past.
The honor will be double, because I will have the session with my dear friend Valter Minute that I recognized as the "Maradona" of embedded systems.
Our session entitled "Internet of Things: my washing machine connected to the Internet?" will be completely dedicated to IoT starting from embedded systems (Microsoft based) to the possible solutions in the Cloud, including the future project "Reykjavik" based on Azure and presented at Build 2014; the title tells the truth, among other things, we will have as its protagonist a washing machine (toy) !
You can find all the information concerning the agenda of the sessions and logistics on the official website in addition to the registration form.
We look forward to this event every year will not disappoint the expectations of those who participate !
