MSDN Webcast: An Introduction to the .NET Micro Framework (Level 200)
Event ID: 1032314669
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Other.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

The Microsoft .NET Micro Framework is an environment that extends the advantages of Microsoft .NET and the toolset in the Microsoft Visual Studio development system into a class of smaller, less expensive, and more resource-constrained devices than have been possible with previous Microsoft embedded offerings. Several Microsoft products use the .NET Micro Framework already, including MSN Direct watches, Microsoft TV Foundation Edition, and Windows Vista SideShow. Since Microsoft made the .NET Micro Framework commercially available, a number of partners have signed up and are actively creating products based on the .NET Micro Framework. In this webcast, we describe how the .NET Micro Framework brings managed code to smaller devices and includes a number of additional features and extensions intended specifically for more of these small, embedded devices. Discover how the integration of the .NET Micro Framework with Visual Studio supports emulation on the computer, in addition to building, deploying, and debugging on the device from within the integrated development environment (IDE). Learn how the .NET Micro Framework also supports UI development with a graphics model inspired by the Windows Presentation Foundation—all of this with a few hundred kilobytes of RAM and a low-end 32-bit processor. Join this session to find out more about the .NET Micro Framework and the products built on it that will be available in the coming months.
