The Windows 10 UWP app CleanupVS is now in The Store. Its a free app for cleaning up Visual Studio workspaces by recursively deleting bin and obj folders from Visual Studio project folders. This article covers some of the code techniques used in he app.
Including, quick folder count, app metadata, using the Feedback Hub and populating a RichTextbox.

The last leg, of 8, of the world Build tour was held in Sydney this week. What can I say .. it was great. A lot of new and coming Creators features were covered, Insight into the latest Windows technologies was dished out. Here are some of the highlights and summary links.
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.
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:
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.
After an absence from significant IoT-Core activity, whilst working on a significant phone app (as blogged here) I’m back in the IoT-Core space. Things have changed for the better so here goes. This blog covers my experiences with getting a RPI3 going with the latest Technical Preview build. Tools are now available to simplify setup and there is now a Remote Viewer. As a test UWP app, I have used (after a small modification) the Icons app on Codeplex, Universal Windows 10 SDK App Icons app as blogged in a previous blog. The app was modified because popups (as in MessageBox) are not supported in IoT-Core (Use thereof can cause an app crash in later OS versions). This feature change is covered.
Universal Windows(10) Apps settings is easy. Its simple to specify as part of the build, save them to storage, get them back and modify .. I mean dead easy!
