Julie and Julia Meets netdunino

My first blog entry is the template blog entry from wordpress, and it says ‘start blogging!’ so I overall have decided to blog about IT, Solutions Architecture and coffee.  So this is the IT bit.

Julie and Julia is a 2009 movie where blogger Julie Powell’s 2002 challenge is to cook all the recipes in Julia Child”s first book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”

So I’ve had a long fascination with micro controllers, there are a number on the market, Basic Stamp , Javelin and the arduino.

Much like Goldilocks Basic Stamp is too soft, Javelin is too hard and arduino is just right.  My brother put me onto the netdunino,  I have more a microsoft background as v’s a Java background, a netduino is a open source electronics platform using the .NET Micro Framework. It features a 32-bit microcontroller and a rich development environment based around Visual Studio Express using C#.  It’s hard core enough for engineers and hobbyists alike.

I got it from littlebird electronics.

It looks like this …


netduinoAt the end I’m hoping to build robots or at least a micro controller base xmas light display.

So the plan is build each project and write about it as I go.  My first write-up is a Blinking LED

Maybe there’s a movie deal in this 🙂
