Have you ever wanted to build an Internet connected catapult or maybe just a door that is unlocked via facial recognition? If so, then you need to know how to build hardware. One of the best things to come from Microsoft in recent years is Windows IoT Core. It’s a Windows operating system that runs on the credit card size Raspberry Pi computer. With it you can build apps that can read sensors and control hardware as well as connect all that information to the Internet. In this session I’ll give you all the knowledge you need to get you started in the exciting world of hardware development using the Raspberry Pi + Windows IoT Core by building an Internet connected catapult. You may want to bring a hard hat!
