How to manage AllJoyn devices in C#: LIFX Color 1000 Example

with one comment

In the previous video we discussed, how to onboard an AllJoyn device using Visual Studio, C# and Windows 10 AllJoyn features (How to onboard AllJoyn devices in C#: LIFX Color 1000 Example).

Today, I am going to show, how we can start working with an “onboarded” AllJoyn device.

ASP.NET Core and VS Code

.NET Core RC 2, ASP.NET Core RC 2 and even .NET Core SDK are available for download. I have tested if it work with Visual Studio Code and… It works great!!!

You should not use any dnx/think about available runtimes and select between mono and coreclr/understand what is dotnet package manager and so on. You can simply install .NET Core and start creating your ASP.NET applications.

My updated video about VS Code and ASP.NET is here:

And couple new videos in the series (about Express and Cordova tools):

I already published some articles about AllJoyn, ZigBee/Z-Wave bridges and bulbs. You can find all my previous posts using these links:

Smart bulbs or how to be lazier (part 1)

Smart bulbs or how to be lazier (part 2)

Smart bulbs or how to be lazier (part 3): AllJoyn client

Smart bulbs or how to be lazier (part 4): IoT Hub


But today I got a chance to play with a truly AllJoyn device – LIFX Color 1000 bulb. And the first task that I had to solve is how to onboard the bulb to my local network. More information about the task you can find watching this video:

Developing Windows 10 applications with C# (the first 3 modules)

with 5 comments

Once I published my book about Windows 10 development, several people told me that developers don’t read paper books anymore. Looks like it’s true. At least, I can see that I sold Kindle edition books in three times more compare to paperback version. That’s why I decided to record a video training about Windows 10 development. Not sure if people like it but I can train my English at least. The first three modules are available on Channel9:

Module 1: What is the Universal Windows Platform?

Module 2: Introduction to XAML

Module 3: Layouts
