Integrating Python into .Net app using Python For .Net

Using Python For .Net to call Python methods from C#

Also to call the methods from a class I had to decorate the Python class method with @ClassMethod

Also, still need to find a way to pass an array into the method. So far have to pass a List and convert in the Python method :(

var lck = PythonEngine.AcquireLock();

PyObject pyportal = PythonEngine.ImportModule(@"SomePyFile"); // .py file
PyObject c = pyportal.GetAttr("ClassName"); // class name in .py file

PyList ls = new PyList(new PyObject[3] { new PyFloat(1.0), new PyFloat(1.0), new PyFloat(1.0) });
c.InvokeMethod("SomeMethod", ls).ToString(); // some method in ClassName

string fromPython = "";
for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++)
    fromPython = c.InvokeMethod("AnotherMethod").ToString();


IronPython does not implement some CPython packages like scipy.fftpack - get cannot import multiarray from numpy.core error

Azure Internet of Things (IoT)

Putting together an IoT concept app using Azure IoTHub, Service Bus, Event Hubs, Streaming Analytics, and Power BI using my MSDN credits. Good stuff. Next I will hook it up to a mobile app for an end to end demo.

Azure Event Hub

Putting a ; at the end of an Azure Event Hub connection string causes an Invalid Token Error. Wow, frustrating.
