This article is meant for anyone who wishes to quickly start developing an embedded Linux web application with access to the hardware GPIO, so that the user can control and/or monitor a system remotely. The application developed here, is based on the Colibri VF61 COM (Computer on Module) by Toradex + the Iris Carrier Board, and a PCB with LEDs and switches. The main goals are to walk the reader through the process of developing Node code for accessing the GPIO via filesystem, building a simple yet user-friendly UI, and using the Express framework for hosting a minimal webserver that communicates with the client-side application by AJAX calls.

Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is the latest product release in the Microsoft Embedded Compact family. It was launched in 2013 and will be supported until 2023, when the end of its life cycle is scheduled.
A major advantage of using the new Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is having the .NET Compact 3.9 and this is what we will be testing in this blog post.

A key distinguishing feature that makes the Windows Embedded Compact different from all other versions of Windows is its real-time scheduler. This is a very important feature to consider when developing embedded systems. It is always nice to remember the meaning of real-time in the engineering context.
