.NET Core 3 with a Raspberry Pi!

Tuesday, 21 January 2020

Talk Description

In this talk, I take attendees through the basics of the .NET Framework, .NET Standard, .NET Core, what it is and its place in the Microsoft Ecosystem.

I then explain how to install .NET Core on the Pi and deploy a .NET Core Console App.

Once the basics are covered, I move on to adding GPIO functionality to the Console app to provide some real-world interaction.

We then add a connection to an Azure IoT Hub.

Finally, I show how to spin up a Blazor app.

What you'll learn by attending this session;

How to get .NET Core 3 up and running on Raspberry Pi, Controlling electronics through GPIO with Dot NET Core 3, Azure IoT Hubs with .NET Core 3, Blazor with Raspberry Pi and .NET Core 3.

Who this talk is suitable for;

This talk is suitable for anybody with basic programming experience and an interest in using their C# experience in the world of IoT"
