Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices with the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human interaction. Billions of physical devices around the world are now connected to internet starting from a light bulb, a smart thermostat and other smart devices. It is imperative that IoT devices are properly coordinated and their data is collected for further data processing for decision making. .NET Core being a cross platform technology, it is better positioned to provide necessary custom programming support for IoT devices.
Check out this .NET Core video series from Channel 9 talking about IoT programming. we know folks like to tinker with Raspberry Pi. Why not add .NET Core to the mix?
