In Windows 10 we have enabled the creation of the next generation of intelligent devices. In this session you’ll learn about how to leverage the value of Windows when building these next generation devices based on hardware like the Raspberry Pi 2, as well as how to extend your Windows devices with the capabilities provided by .NETMF and Arduino. We will demonstrate how we have extended the platform to include support for popular Internet of Things (IoT) hardware interfaces (like GPIO and I2C) to enable you to build rich devices based on the Raspberry Pi 2 (from fun DIY arcade machines through life-saving flood-detection systems) Additionally we will teach you how to use our remote wiring and virtual shields open-source libraries to create innovative new solutions. With remote wiring you can add Arduino Wiring calls into your apps that execute on a remotely (BT) connected Arduino device; similarly with our virtual shields library you will learn how to expose your device’s capabilities to a remotely connected Arduino device. Finally we’ll be showing you the latest improvements we've made to the .NETMF and how these are being leveraged by our partners to create compelling new hardware.

    Great demos! Can't wait to get hands on Win10 for IoT.

    I am inspired to send my Lumia 525 into space with this technology

    It was a really fun session, and obviously very well thought out.  Felt bad for Steve when the final demo didn't quite go to plan, but it was still all completely awesome.  Thank you for the hard work and the surprise at the end!

    Great session, but kind of annoying to hear people applaud the LED strip screen and the fact that the picture was apparently shown on it, but not being able to see any of it here in the video. Did somebody take a picture of the setup?

    It was a great session to attend in-person! Steve did a great job explaining things! Looking forward to similar topics

    Good session, only sad part was that the cameraman didn't zoom out to show us the LED matrix that the photo was being rendered to.
