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 !

There is a new .Net Micro Framework board in town !
In the past few months, MikroElektronika release the Quail Board as a solution for building hardware prototypes using all the best features of .Net Micro Framework and the related “click” boards for a lot of type of external devices, like sensors (humidity, temperature, …), wifi module, OLED and so on.
It was and it will be a very busy time for me ... and if you want to hear me talk about the Internet of Things around Italy (and the "world"), you just need to read the agenda of upcoming events !
Tomorrow, on Saturday April 18th, there will be the third edition of the Microsoft Embedded Conference in Naples that has become the Internet of Things Conference organized as always by the DotNetCampania community thanks to the sponsorship of Microsoft Italy.
A year has passed since I received the first Microsoft MVP award on Windows Embedded and a few days ago (on April 1st) I received the more exciting email you might expect ... the renewal !
My "role" as MVP has allowed me to be at the summit in November in Redmond at the Microsoft headquarter and for me it was an awesome experience, knowing the team that works on IoT and all those people with whom I had only "virtual" contacts.
Thanks to all those who have continued to believe in me and consider me worthy of this award.
As for me I will continue with maximum effort, hoping that next year will be here again to write the same post !
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 ...
