    Everyone knows Windows 10 was released last week, but not everyone knows that besides the desktop version was released, but Windows 10 IoT Core was released for two devices too, the Raspberry Pi 2 and MinnowBoard MAX.

    Once you get these, the next question might be, how do you get started? Friend of the Blog, Michael Crump, has shared a great getting started guide...

    Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi 2


    This is the core OS image that powers Windows IoT platform on Raspberry Pi 2. Windows 10 IoT Core is the smallest version of the Windows 10 editions that leverages the Windows 10 common core architecture. This edition enables building low-cost devices with fewer resources. Development for Windows 10 IoT Core leverages the Universal Windows Platform. Learn more about Windows 10 IoT Core here.

    A Guided Tour of Windows 10 IoT Core


    At //Build 2015, Microsoft demonstrated a version of Windows running on a Raspberry Pi 2 board. They released a preview version of the OS and supported two boards from the start, including the MinnowBoard Max. A second build arrived in June that included an easier flashing tool, SSH and numerous bug fixes.

    It’s worth noting that the Intel Galileo board does not support Windows 10 IoT Core. It only supports the previous version of Windows on Devices.

    But what does this mean to developers and why should you even care? A good summary of where things stand can be found in Jen Looper’s post, “8 Key Findings About IoT Development.” Some interesting things to point out are :

    • Only half of developers have the actual skills to develop for it. This is where you can get a head start and start learning it now, where your skills will be in demand for the future.
    • We’ve seen home automation and wearables join the fun, but there are big businesses that will require IoT in the future.
    • Android and Java are popular, but Microsoft is allowing you to use a language you are comfortable with (C#) and as well as a UI (XAML).

    In this post, I’ll take you through my journey of setting up a device and finally building an app that run on Windows 10 IoT Core. Since we will be using the Release Candidate of Visual Studio 2015, it’s important to point out that anything is subject to change.
