When making a web server, we need to connect our Gadgeteer to the Internet, or at the very least to our local network. If you have Broadband Internet, then you are likely to have a modem/switch that may provide you with wireless access to the Internet, but more importantly for this project, a set of RJ45 sockets on the back (often four of them) to which we can connect the Gadgeteer using an Ethernet patch lead. Web Messenger 47 Figure 4-3. Hello World Figure 4-4. Hello Web Server Modules While we are programming it, the Gadgeteer will also be connected to our computer, which will probably also be providing it power from the USB connection.

As with our “Hello World” project in Chapter 1, the first step in this project is to add the necessary components to the design in Visual Studio’s designer. Make sure you have the same Mainboard on your canvas as you actually have. Next drag on a Display, a Camera, and an SD Card, and arrange them as shown in Figure 2-2.
