If you want to kick start some development in the world of Windows 10 IoT it can be a daunting place to start. You’ll need to get yourself up and running with the Windows 10 O/S on your Raspberry Pi 2 and also have Visual Studio 2015 installed on your PC. Microsoft has a great guide on how to do this.
Once you have everything configured then what next?
The following tutorial shows you how to set up a basic Windows 10 LED Dice, a simple application to turn on some lights, learn some C# along the way and to help out anyone starting out with this O/S. The basic idea is that you can click a button to roll the die and the result is displayed on screen. The corresponding number of LED lights will then light up on the breadboard.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
