Running C# code on Raspberry Pi 3 with .Net core 2.0

In our last video in YouTube channel of ExecuteAutomation we discussed how to install Windows 10 IoT on RaspberryPi 3 and access it via Powershell and device portal, in this post we will discuss how to run an simple C# console application on RaspberryPi 3 with .Net Core 2.0 framework.

Getting stage ready for .Net core 2.0 app

Before we start writing console application, first we need to have following pre-requisite environment setup

  1. Installing .Net Core 2.0 SDK in Windows 10 host machine, which you can see from here
  2. Should have at least VS code or VS 2017 community edition (to edit C# code)


Here is the simple code written to execute on RaspberryPi 3 running Windows 10 IoT

After Coding

Connect with Raspberry Pi 3 via power shell and enable FTP service to transfer file from host machine to Raspberry Pi 3

Working with Interfaces in Typescript

In our last article, we discussed how to work with Enums, functions and anonymous functions. In this article, we will discuss about Interfaces in Typescript.


One of TypeScript’s core principles is that type-checking focuses on the shape that values have. This is sometimes called “duck typing” or “structural subtyping”. In TypeScript, interfaces fill the role of naming these types, and are a powerful way of defining contracts within your code as well as contracts with code outside of your project.

Type interference to actual types

Now our existing function we discussed in previous post will become from this

Angular 2 automation with Protractor + Typescript + Cucumber

Dear friends,

I am very happy to release the next big course in Udemy on Angular 2 automation with Protractor + Typescript + Cucumber.

This course is very interesting and one of my long time goal/ambition to release for QA community, since I find Zero or No resource on Protractor automation testing at least with Typescript combination.

The course features following topics

  • Understand building Angular 2 application with Angular-cli
  • Understanding and working with Jasmine
  • Understanding and working with Protractor (Basic)
  • Understanding and working with Protractor (Advanced)
  • Working with Cucumber and Protractor with Typescript

The course has not only covered very basic topics on Protractor, but it has also covered some of the advanced concepts which are required for production ready and industry standard.

Here is the complete introduction video of the above discussion

Thanks for reading the post and watching the video!!!

Please leave your comments and let me know if there is anything I should update in this post.

Working with Functions, Anonymous and Arrow functions in Typescript

In our last post we discussed how to work with Variable, Enums and Arrays in Typescript. In this post we will discuss working with different types of functions


Functions are the fundamental building block of any applications in JavaScript. They’re how you build up layers of abstraction, mimicking classes, information hiding, and modules. In TypeScript, while there are classes, namespaces, and modules, functions still play the key role in describing how to do things. TypeScript also adds some new capabilities to the standard JavaScript functions to make them easier to work with

Function Parameters

  1. Parameter with types
  2. Rest parameters
  3. Default parameters

Parameters with Types

This function looks something like this

Rest Parameters

Default Parameters

Anonymous Functions

Functions which don’t have Name/identifiers are considered as Anonymous functions. These functions are dynamic and called during runtime

Arrow Functions

Working with Variables, Enums and Arrays with Typescript

In our last post we discussed an introduction and installation of Typescript, in this post we will discuss how to work with Variables, Enums and Arrays with Typescript.

Working with Variables

There are different types available in Typescript which are almost available in JS like

  1. Number
  2. String
  3. Boolean
  4. Any
  5. void
  6. Null

Variable Declaration

Declarations of variable can be done with following in Typescript

  1. let
  2. const
  3. var

Working with Arrays and Enums

Enums allow us to define a set of named numeric constants. An enum can be defined using the enum keyword.


Inserting an value in to an array can be done something like this

Introducing ExecuteAutomation app for Android

Today I am very excited to announce that we are releasing our first ever ExecuteAutomation android application on Google play

The application is not really going to show you static web pages rendered within an web view of android, rather it’s going to be an all new application written natively for android from complete ground up to showcase all the videos released in YouTube so far (400+ videos)

About application

ExecuteAutomation android application UI is designed by keeping simplicity in mind, its much faster, lighter (< 2 Mb), interactive and easy to use.

Figure 1 Interactive UI

The above screenshot shows all the common features and functionalities one would ever need to use this application from their mobile phone, hence I am really not going to write to much about the application in this post. Read more
