Hello .net Gadgeteer

Not too long ago I bought a FEZ Cerberus Tinker Kit and a few extra modules. Just for fun and to see if the kids would find that interesting. The Fez Cerberus Tinker Kit contains a .net gadgeteer mainboard and some modules. .net gadgeteer is a system in the same ballpark as the arduino and netduino. The gadgeteer system has a bit more horsepower compared to the arduino.

If you haven’t heard about it you can get an idea about it from listening to this Dot Net Rocks podcast episode.

To get started with using the Gadgeteer system I’ll be creating a series of github source code repositories with very simple “hello world” applications using a gadgeteer mainboard, a connector to the PC and (mostly) one more module.

I put a video on Youtube of the result.

The first repository is showing how to use the mainboard led.
