This Sketch scans a phone keypad using the Keypad library and detects key pressed, released and held events. The events generate a string that is sent serially denoting the event and key.
This Sketch is a slight modification of that published as a companion to the original General Bluetooth Serial App.
A library on Codeplex. Been a long time coming: Arduino sketches and UWP class libraries and apps, focused upon scanning a phone keypad as input (Bluetooth serial) to a UWP app running on a phone, desktop or IoT-Core device.
What to do when you can’t find your Windows phone.
The Surface 2 has a weird power connector. That makes it difficult to charge it from a battery power pack. This blog outlines creating one from a DC 12V 36W Car Charger Adapter for a Surface 2. Building it wasn’t too difficult. This means I can now use my Surface 2 on long journeys without need to access main power to charge it. Cost about $A40 apart from the Surface and Power Bank.
I did a presentation last Thursday for the Melbourne Azure Meetup.
The slides are at: http://www.slideshare.net/cedriverwiz/windows-10-iotcore-to-azure-iot-suite
The sample app (A UWP app communicating with an Azure IoT Hub using TPM): https://github.com/djaus2/AzureHubRegisterIoT
Whilst it does not go into great detail about Azure IoT Suite, it covers everything in the leader up to it. including:
AppInstall can be used to install Appx packages on an IoT-Core device This blog covers an updated version of the toolkit for use on the latest Winsider IoT-Core builds.
The Week or Two That Was
DAVID JONES V1.1
Some of the issues I have been looking at over the last week or so.
In the previous two blogs I discussed using the Web Portal running on a Windows 10 Phone to remotely or in-phone install and Universal Windows Platform app. In this blog I discuss options for install UWP app packages on Windows 10 IoT devices. This is a work in progress as I have not had success some of these methodologies.
You can now remotely install an app in a simple way. No need for Windows 10 SDK to get winappdeploycmd, You can use Device Manager in a browser locally or on the phone to do it. Here's how. The previous blog covered the basics about app packages, deployment and setting up for sideloading. This blog covers remote app installation and in phone app installation using Device Manager running in a browser.
