Today's Hardware Friday post is meant to "teach you how to
fish find your own cool projects"
hackster.io is a great community that is all about learning hardware...
"Hackster helps people everywhere learn how to design, create and program Internet-connected hardware. By bringing together our network of close to 200,000 engineers, makers and hackers, 90 technology partners, and 100 Hackster Live ambassadors, we hope to support the creation of technologies that impact meaningful issues, such as a healthy environment, wildlife preservation, and our own welfare."
While that by itself is something great to blog about here, the icing on the cake is that there's a Microsoft focused community on Hackster...
The final bit is that many of the projects have complete instructions, parts list and details...
You are about to embark on a journey, and we are excited to be part of it! Get ready to make and program your robot using Windows 10 IoT Core!
By the time you are done with this project you will gain the following experience:
- Understand how Windows 10 Universal Windows Applications (UWA) work
- See how the same application can come alive and change behavior by running on the robot via Windows 10 IoT Core on a Raspberry Pi 2 and on your Windows 10 Desktop PC
- Control digital GPIO from your Raspberry Pi 2
- Process keyboard, mouse clicks and touch events
We are excited to embark on this journey with you - Thank you from the Microsoft IoT Team!
