Building from scratch a small system data acquisition with Arduino and Dht11 sensor. Sql, C# and Windows Forms data visualization

Hello, we are Bruna and Genti, we are both computer science engineers and also Arduino and automatization systems enthusiasts.
We are glad to present our first program build from scratch using Arduino Uno and Dht11 sensor.
What is dht11 sensor?
Dht11 is sensor that can provide in real time measurements of temperature and humidity of any ambient, home, office or even of the outside ambient.
What we did?
If you know a little Arduino you know that it uses his own IDE that you can write your code in C or C++ language and you can see the results in a simple white console, so we choose to visualize this data in a real application that have many components like analog gauges, database, buttons, reports and charts.
What programming languages we choose and why?
We decide to use C# and SQL, many of you will ask why but for us it was a simple choice because now C# and VS2017 offers many free tools, visual components and libraries that can be found at Nuget and also have many similarities with C++.
NuGet is a free and open-source package manager designed for the Microsoft development platform.
Now for more about our application you have to be part our presentation and give us your opinions.

Hey guys this seems quite interesting and related to what we are into (open hardware & open source in general) :slight_smile:
When are you planning to host the event? I would avoid Sundays, official holidays and days when events are already planned (the list is here: https://wiki.openlabs.cc/faqja/Aktivitete). Usually 18.00 or 17.30 is a good time since many people are off from their studies/work and visit the hackerspace to chill.

Redon, we decide to organize our event on Thursday at 18:00, if its ok let me know pls.
Thanks.

Hey Gent, I forgot to tell you that every Thursday there is a meeting on the OSCAL organizing team from 17.30 - 19.30. Apologies for not informing you earlier. This is a weekly pre-arranged meeting and unfortunately it can not changed. Can you please propose another date? Please also avoid the forst week of November since many of us will be outside Tirana.

Thank you for initiating this and again apologies for the change.
