Project Description

An open-source Lync Christmas Tree Lights project using the Lync 2010 Client API, a FEZ Mini, and Adafruit 12mm Diffused Digital RGB LED Pixels.

Currently Initial 1.0 Release. Everything should work - there may be some scenerios I haven't tested yet.

I'll add some detailed documentation and build instructions in the next few days.

This project is a recreation of the project done by Andrej Kyselica, see it here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/simonmay/archive/2010/12/16/lync-2010-sdk-christmas-lights-awesome.aspx

This project uses a modified version of Fez Term http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=FezTerm to communicate with the FEZ Mini.

This project uses this driver http://code.tinyclr.com/project/320/sparkfun-32-rgb-led-strip-wic/ for the Adafruit Lights.
