Version 15

    Yesterday Microsoft made its official announcement about the public release of Windows 10 IoT Core for the Raspberry Pi 2. It's targeted towards small, embedded devices that don't necessarily have screens, as it doesn't include the familiar Windows shell you're used to seeing on your PC. Which works in favour of all you engineers, inventors and hackers out there who like to give your gear a touch of personal identity; all you'll need to get involved is a Windows 10 machine running Visual Studio 2015.

     

    That's all great for diving headlong into the exciting world of code creation. But what about your early introduction to this tasty new bounty of binary brilliance for the beloved Raspberry Pi 2? As you guessed, element14 is here to help.

    This is a living document that we'll keep up to speed with all our content to bring you the ultimate guide to Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2, packed with official and community-created guides, projects, hints and tips right beneath your mouse pointer. And if there's anything you want us to add to the list, just say so in the comments.

    Running Windows 10 IoT Core and Code on the Raspberry Pi 2

    Once you're installed and ready, there's still a little work to do on your Windows 10 IoT Core Raspberry Pi 2 (that name needs seriously shortening!). Here's how to connect to it from your desktop PC and complete your set up.

    Projects


    Raspberry PI 2.0, Windows 10 and the DAC8734 from TI

    Ready to start hooking up your Raspberry Pi 2 with Windows IoT Core to some of Texas Instruments' DACs? Once again, peteroakes got there first and is sharing his work on element14. He's put up three projects on the subject, and each is as fascinating as the next. Check 'em out:

     

    PiFace Digital II on a PI2, Windows 10 IoT and a cool demo

    At the time of writing, peteroakes noticed there weren't any libraries for the PiFace Digital II's chip in Windows 10 IoT Core, so he made his own! And, being the top dude that he is, he's shared them with you here on element14 and even included a demo project so you can get to grips with this essential Raspberry Pi 2 add-on.

     

    SHARP96 LCD Displays on a PI 2, Windows 10 IoT and a cool demo

    peteroakes is back, and this time he's brought some Sharp LCD displays with him. Check out these tidy, tiny LCDs running on a Raspberry Pi 2 with Windows IoT Core bubbling beneath. A great way to look through the Window (10).

     

    Raspberry Pi 2, 480*320 Colour LCD Displays on a Windows 10 IoT and a really cool demo

    peteroakes take on another small LCD display by strapping it to a Raspberry Pi and firing up Windows 10 IoT. At the risk of sounding like BuzzFeed, you won't believe what happened next.
