IoT with Windows on Devices

I have a new in-depth article published online today called, “IoT with Windows on Devices”.

See below for more information and a link to the online article.

Article Introduction

The Internet of Things (IoT) allow us to connect people and things around the world using an IPV6 address. With the size of IPV6, we could assign an IP address to every atom on the surface of the earth, and still have enough IP addresses left to do another 100+ earths. In other words, humans could easily assign an IP address to every “thing” on the planet. It isn’t very surprising that we have started to see them being included in “things” such as heart monitoring implants, smart thermostats and garage door openers that use WiFi for remote monitoring.

Where does Microsoft fit in? At //Build 2014 they demonstrated a version of Windows running on a Intel Galileo board. They opened a signup page and off we went. Since //Build 2014, better hardware has been released as well as updated images of Windows for Embedded Devices. We’ve also recently heard about Windows 10 running on a Raspberry Pi 2! Exciting times are ahead for us!

In this post, I’ll take you through the process of what you need in order to get started developing apps that run on Microsoft’s Windows on Devices using the Intel Galileo V2 board. Since we will be using Visual Studio 2013, I’ll show you how you can leverage the Windows platform and utilize familiar Win32 programming.
