Post on continuing efforts with this project.
Description of Components:
- Raspberry Pi 2
- Windows 10 IoT Core on Raz
- Visual Studio Community Edition
- Trying C# here for something different.
Challenges to Date:
- More of a surprise than challenge but the Visual Studio Community edition is huge > 30GB. I've been moving to light weight IDEs so this was a surprise.
- Deploying from VS to Raz Pi2 received request for PIN number which I could not satisfy. Pr0blem traced to version incompatibility between VS Update 1 and Win10-IoT 10.0.10240. Resolved by burning 10.0.10586 onto SD card. this resolved the problem.
- Reading brightness, temperature, humidity.
- Processing cloud-to-device messages
- Controlling light state based on C2D messages
