.NET Zone is brought to you in partnership with:

I’ve been a Windows developer since 3.0 and caught the Visual Basic wave early with v1. I’ve released a “production” application in every version of VB since then (except VB for DOS). Focusing on enterprise, line-of-business development I’ve built Call Center Applications, Mortgage finance systems, Customer Relationship Management tools and more recently I’ve been in the Litigation Support/Electronic Data Discovery/Electronically Stored Information space.

Mission Control to Major...C4F - Coding4Fun Mission Control project

CodePlex - Coding4Fun Mission Control

Coding4Fun Mission Control is a flexible framework that allows developers to easily create an API to control a variety of devices through an extensible network communication platform. For end-users, a companion Windows Phone application is available, that communicates with the controller server through a well-defined set of short-codes.

With a simple command-based interaction mechanism, it is possible to establish an "always-on" communications channel and invoke commands on the attached device from any location with an active network connection.



The sample solution includes a server (Win32 console application) and a Windows Phone 8 application that interact through an open TCP channel to control a USB-based Phidget IR dual-mode sensor.

Den Delimarsky and the C4F team are doing it again (and again I'm probably posting this a little early as I just happened to catch it in the CodePlex RSS stream... ;)
