This is the first in a series of tutorials on programming the Netduino with Visual Basic or VB. You can program the netduino with either C# or VB but VB is now my language of choice.
Programming your Netduino with C# is fine and all, however, I am not going to do it any more. It is super easy to make the switch to a more forgiving programming language by the name of Visual Basic or VB.
In order to upgrade or replace the firmware in your Netduino you will need to download some software first.
In this video I show how to connect a servo to a Netduino and also how to program the servo library into a new solution. The sweep program will drive the arm of the servo back and forth while the Knob program will move the arm of the servo when you turn a potentiometer.
