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 !

Finally the new M2Mqtt 4.1 version is out !
In the last months, my library was under pressure thanks to my friends Olivier Vigliengo (from Adeneo) and Nicolas Besson (Microsoft MVP on Windows Embedded, from Adeneo). They used the MQTT client for their hobbistic projects and stressed it a lot !
After exchanging a lot of emails with log traces, I fixed some bugs and added some improvements to the library.
A new use case for M2Mqtt library !! The case studies section of the official web site has a new great example usage !
Jon Gallant from Microsoft (IoT maker team) wrote an interesting article about his “maker experience” with a demo on using MQTT on a Raspberry Pi. In this scenario, he doesn’t use native C/C++ library available for MQTT but he made the great choice to use C# language and M2Mqtt library on Mono project !
The article describers all the steps to setup the entire demo from hardware to Mono installation on the Raspberry Pi and example code execution.
Great to see another M2Mqtt use case but this time on a Linux environment !
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).
Thursday, October 23 there was in Naples the "Mobile Camp" organized by Microsoft with my community DotNetCampania and focused on the development on Windows Phone and Windows platforms.
Who knows the MQTT protocol, used in the Internet of Things market, also knows that the reference project for it is Paho of the Eclipse Foundation.
In this large list, until a few days ago, an implementation in C# usable on .Net and WinRT platforms was missing . This gap was filled with my M2Mqtt project that is now officially under Paho umbrella for which I’m officially a committer !
In December 2013, the Linux Foundation announced the AllSeen Alliance, a consortium dedicated to the development and innovation in the Internet of Things market in our homes and industrial environments.
One of the main features of an “object” in the Internet of Things world is its ability to exchange messages, sending data or receiving commands, as effectively and efficiently as possible. There are several standard protocols for this purpose but one of my favorites is MQTT.
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 !
M2Mqtt Spy is an application for analyzing MQTT traffic and it is based on M2Mqtt client (http://www.m2mqtt.net). With this application you can connect to an MQTT broker (local or remote) with following features : publish message on a specific topic (with QoS 0), subscribe to one or more topics, receive and show messages on topics.
