Windows 10 IoT Core + Raspberry Pi = Internet of things
Perhaps many do not remember, but some months ago when we talk about the Raspberry Pi 2 we referred to this minicomputer would be capable of running Windows 10 once this was available. Doubt was turning, but the Raspberry Pi is a computer that impresses with its capabilities, would hardly be able to run Windows 10 as we came to know so far, something we needed to know, and finally learned that consists connection Microsoft wants to have these tiny computers.
Windows 10 IoT (Internet Of Things) and is called one of the 7 versions of Windows 10 you have, and that will be responsible for interacting with devices like the Raspberry Pi Max MinnowBoard all in favor of the mass of projects have to do with the Internet of things. And it is available for those who want to work on it.
Larger front of their new test versions are in power take advantage of WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity equipment, better support when coding in Python and Node.js (about the latter a new template) and a new platform universal APIs to control details such as connection and location.
This version of Windows 10 is oriented directly to the open source and Microsoft recommends that before you know a revised web GitHub and Hackster.io, there could see the first projects implemented by the company code with the user community IoT. Also it included in the list a potentiometer, a weather station, tools capture audio and video, mini Rover, a browser, an LED screen and air hockey table with touch controls starts playing automatically.
If you want to start developing for Windows 10 IoT Core, you must meet some pretty minimum requirements:
– Have Windows 10 (Build 10240).
– Have installed Visual Studio 2015.
The announcement mentioned that this new development platform has the ability to communicate with other open source languages, so the range of possibilities and projects opens a lot more.
