    Only 2 parts into the series but like it already.
    I have a netduino plus 2 so I'm curious to see what's next...

    This series looks very interesting - especially the use of the Arduino. Subscribed!

    (Oh and by the way - is that a flux capacitor on your t-short and is that Darth Vader having a grip-pf-death on the Apple logo? Good sense of humor Smiley )

    Clemens, great series on microcontrollers!  I have a couple comments and suggestions about the topics you cover.  First, you should look at BeagleBones.  The latest, BeagleBone Black, uses a 1GHz ARM processor, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 2GB flash storage, Ethernet, HDMI, etc for $45.  As far as I know, it's the best microcomputer available today.     It is Linux based and perhaps more importantly, runs node.js.  This device screams to be connected to the Internet! 

    I haven't had time to fully explore it, but it seems that the availability of Node on a device would allow use of a wide variety of javascript libraries to overcome the security concerns you have raised.  Configuring your device with an Oauth2 library, client id, and secret to communicate over SSL would achieve a level of security that is well accepted and used on the Internet today.  Additionally, configuring the device to be a SignalR or Socket.io client would allow for realtime communication. 

    I haven't watched past Part 2, but yet I'm looking forward to see what you do with Service Bus!
