@juanfranblanco Yes, I work with John Gerryts at EthEmbedded all the time. What is up?
Or do you just mean helping with getting .NET code running on the SBCs? I wonder if anybody has been working on ensuring that .NET Core runs on RPi, etc? Either Mono or .NET Core should work on all these ARM devices.
@TrekDev Ah ... OK. You remain the mystery man then :-)

@bobsummerwill I meant on @TrekDev energy project
On the meters side. Just a passing thought.
Yes mono / core works on the pi. It works on windo
10 too. It will be interesting to have a uwp geth light client, which you can interact via IPC. Or even better custom contracts.
Store apps contracts

Right, right. Yes, all that sounds good.

And then here's my own test-grid for C++ cross-builds on a myriad of resource-constrained devices (https://github.com/doublethinkco/cpp-ethereum-cross), which overlaps with John's list. We've collaborated a lot. I got a grant recently for continuing that work (and getting started on Light Client for C++ soon) - https://doublethink.co/2016/02/23/we-have-blockgrantx-funding/.

The more powerful SBCs run OK as full node, but only just, and anything weaker is constrained to JSON-RPC to a trusted full node for right now, until "real" Light Client protocol support is added. Zsolt has been working on that for geth since last year, and it will start to land after the Geth-1.4.0 release. But that's the only implementation which has even be started yet, to my knowledge. And then my C++ one will be number 2.

That full "Project ADEPT" vision will need real Light Nodes for truly autonomous Edge Computing scenarios, but JSON-RPC to trusted nodes will be a good stop-gap:

Discussion happening right now in https://gitter.im/ethereum/light-client, including Henning Diedrich (from video directly above) asking about LES status :-)
Do you work for Electron directly, @TrekDev? You guys are already talking to Slock.it, right? We should get you connected with Henning.

Cool, so you are doing the c++ imp of the light client? That
Will be easier to wrap as a uwp. And put on top the contracts

And I can point you to a fabulous solution for that, using Clang/LLVM, built by Joao Matos of Xamarin :-)
