Hacking Your Car - Driving Towards a smarter future

Inspired by everything from Star Trek to the Tesla car, I've embarked on a journey to transform my truck from mundane to something that is more than meets the eye. Ever since I was old enough to drive, I've dreamed of having a car with a computerized dashboard, but it seemed out of reach until recently. With the advent of affordable tiny embedded computers like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi I was finally ready to make this a reality. I wanted a system that could grow with my dreams, so I created CADI, an open source Computer Aided Dashboard Instrumentation system. I'll take you with me from concept to integration, taking a look at how I choose my hardware, what I've learned trying to integrate with my car's electronics, what it can do today, and where I'd like to take it moving forward. If you've ever wanted something more than that stock radio & analog A/C controls you'll want to check out project CADI (projectcadi.com).

Packaging your world with NuGet

Whether you are creating an open source library or building enterprise app core components, you need to get that functionality into other projects. But developing these resources is usually easier than consuming them. How about a worry free way to distribute and reference those resources in your project that will let you stay up to date, but allow you to avoid problems that may introduce breaking changes or new bugs? NuGet packages to the rescue! We'll also take a look at where you can find NuGet (packages aren't just for code any more) and how to create, distribute, and maintain your very own package. Then, you’ll be ready to share your package with your team, your enterprise, or even… The world!
