Bringing Tasks to NETMF via a Batmobile - (or a Batmobile code off)

A session at .NET Fringe Conference

Tuesday 14th April, 2015

2:05pm to 2:35pm (PST)

"I would like to discuss the fully managed code, TLP inspired, Task API that I created for the Micro Framework (and net1.0). How having a task oriented API helps improve the portability of developers to NETMF. What's next, now that we have a Task API, maybe its time to think about a uOWIN?

This code is in a private repo on GitHub, and I will allow a Reader access for verification of existence. I am in the middle of a structural cleanup as I implement full build automation (including my xunit inspired test framework) and Nuget delivery. Once this structural change is complete, I will cleanup the history and open access.

I recently put this code into production with an Outlaw Pinewood Derby car. It smashed into a wall 50 feet away about 10 feet high after running the track backwards. It survived mostly intact, and has since been rebuilt. I'm willing to run it just about anywhere, and video it.

I see the possibility of adding an I2C/SPI Accelerometer, and having an open code contest to use the platform in a unique way - such as logging, motion based motor start: pull back to wind up, and others."
