In this episode of On .NET, Peter Marcu (@PeterMarcu‏) joins Rich to talk about how to get started with coding for a Raspberry PI board using .NET Core. He shows us what's on the board, discusses some of the challenges, and even goes through a few code samples. 

  • [02:54] - Peter describes the components on the board
  • [03:38] - What OSes run on Raspberry PI boards? 
  • [04:43] - Peter talks about some of the connectors and interfaces
  • [06:39] - Peter walks us through some code samples
  • [12:58] - Peter talks about the challenges of working with hardware
  • [16:16] - How can you learn more ?

 Check out these links to the libraries and code samples talked about in this episode.  





The Discussion

    Just configure your DHCP server (usually your router) to always give a predefined IP to a device with a certain MAC address. DHCP will never give this IP to any other device and always give this IP to the device with the configured MAC.

    I have been using Unosquare RaspberryIO which comes with a handy SSH deployment utility. It fills most of my needs, even camera support.

    I'd be happy when the SDK is available for the Pi, so teachers can start learning their students how to program .net core on a Pi, with no other computer needed than the pi itself.

    "it would be really cool if there was an LED that would tell you what IP you have"... there is.. they make a miniature LED screen that attaches to the device and presents the Desktop..sure you can code this to continually provide the network settings.

    @Stannieman: If you install Apple's Bonjour service (if not it's a free install from here) and you know the hostname (as you do with a fresh install of Raspbian) you can just PuTTY in to the Pi using the hostname, no IP address needed. You need to copy over a blank ssh file to the boot partition before booting of course.
