iCanProgram has extended its popular online programming course to include a lesson on programming an IO Anywhere network appliance. The IO Anywhere network appliance is very suited to home automation projects.
iCanProgram (http://www.icanprogram.com/nofeecourses.html) has been offering online software developer training courses since Jan 2002. Since that time over 2500 students have participated. All the courses are offered without fees. In return all they ask is that the participants make a contribution to Cancer research in memory of one of the founders.
iCanProgram recently announced an extension to one of their popular courses (http://www.icanprogram.com/extremelinux.html) whereby students learn how to write software to drive a live online network appliance from IO Anywhere (http://www.io -anywhere.ca).
The IO Anywhere network appliance is ideally suited to home automation projects. For technical details feel free to peruse their website above.
