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.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
