  • Device to Cloud, Hands-On. Part 4: ​Intermediat​ed, Service-​Assisted Connectivity

    Great info!  I'm looking forward to the next episode.

  • Device to Cloud, Hands-On. Part 2: Pattern Overview and Commands with HTTP

    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 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!

    If you are ever down in San Diego, we are always looking for speakers for our group:



  • SPA Party with John Papa

    Great short intro to the Hot Towel SPA!  I'm about halfway through the Pluralsight Single Page App course by John Papa.  I would highly recommend it to anyone who liked this video.
