Windows IoT is the awesome cross-platform development system from Microsoft, that gives you the Windows 10 programming environment on embedded devices.
In this series, we show you how to get started with Windows IoT. We’ll help you setup your development environment, and then show you how to write your first two Windows IoT applications for your Raspberry Pi. (read more)
Learn how to create an Windows IoT Headless Application
There are two basic types of Windows IoT applications: “headed” and “headless”.
“Headless” apps have no graphical user interface (GUI), and are said to run “in the background”. That is, they continue to run even when you start up a “headed” application. Also, they don’t depend on having a monitor attached to the system. (read more)
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.
