New - Windows 10 IoT Core Pro Page

Windows 10 IoT core version 14393 adds support for 64-bit Intel Architecture images, which means more platform support from embedded PCs is now possible. A new page has been created to support future information around IoT Core. I kick off the page with a new article - Windows® 10 IoT Core Pro Running on Intel® Architecture Platforms


New - Windows 10 IoT Core Pro Training Course

Windows 10 IoT Core is the smallest of the new Windows Core family, and it is targeted for Embedded/IoT systems. Like past Windows Embedded offerings, IoT Core information is scattered across the web. There are two basic development paths, application development and image development. The Windows 10 IoT Core Pro Training Course (1 Day) focusses on image development. By gathering the information across the internet, the class covers several topics such as the new Windows Embedded/IoT direction, required software and hardware tools, remote management, basic application deployment, image development process, selectable OS features, application integration, and device driver integration. Four hands-on labs walk through Host/Target system setup, basic application development, custom image development and application integration, and device driver integration.

The target for the class is the MinnowBoard Max or MinnowBoard Turbot. Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 can also be used, but the Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 cannot be used for the last lab. Students are to bring their own target (with LCD, SD card, and keyboard/mouse) and Windows 10 1511 (ver 10586) development laptop or higher. 5 GB of free space is needed on the host laptop to install all the tools. A list of what needs to be installed will be provided after signing up. We have a limited number of laptops that can be used in the class. A wired network will be provided for Host/Target development. The installer for the BSP files is also required. The BSP is available in certain MSDN subscriptions or if a CLA is signed with Microsoft.

Windows 10 IoT Enterprise Training Course

The Windows 10 IoT Enterprise Training Course (2 Days) covers the development process for using System Image Manager (SIM) and Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (WICD) to deploy Windows 10 with custom applications, drivers, and other settings. The class dives into distribution shares, lockdown features, device look-and-feel experience, and security. Beyond the tools and features, the class also looks and architecture for both builds and product life cycle. The class provides a hands-on experience with the tools using several exercises.

Development Day - An optional 3rd Day is available for those who want to bring their hardware and use what they learn in the class to create an image for their specific target system.
