Windows 10 IoTCore, as implemented on the Raspberry Pi 2 (RPI2) initially came with no WiFi or Bluetooth (BT) connectivity. These were then added as USB dongles but with a limited listed of hardware that worked. RPI3 has built in WiFi and BT. What is the state of play with IoTCore connectivity with the RPI now? Are there any issues?

Windows 10 desktop/tablet has undergone a major refresh. At the same time Windows Mobile (Windows Phone 10) has RTMed. Also Windows 10 IoT-Core has also invoked two license versions with its latest concurrent release.

This post shows (version 4.0) the JSON file that is loaded as start up and parsed to form a list of commands that is displayed in the left pane of the app’s UI
In my previous blog Windows 10 (including IoT) USB HID device identification was covered in detail. This included an app that takes the relevant IDs for an HID device and checks whether it is present on the system. Two of the IDs could be looked up via a menu as they come an HID Usage table. The menu data was loaded from a JSON (text) file and translated using Linq to a list that is the Xaml data source binding for the menu. This blog demonstrates the mechanism for loading JSON data from a text file into an Xaml ComboBox.
Whilst the Raspberry Pi 2 has extensibility through GPIO, I2C, SPI and Single wire, the main interface for adding off-the-shelf peripherals is via USB. Unlike the desktop, there is though only a limited set of USB peripherals that can be used on the RPI2 running Windows 10 IoT in the first release. This series of articles looks at what is available and what the overarching issues are. The first Article is “Connected Devices”
Peripheral devices can be connected to the Raspberry PI 2 via the four USB host ports. The connected devices can be examined in a number of ways. This blog examines these methods.

A truly Universal App will run on all Windows 10 targets, with only a targeted CPU change and rebuild required. This second part of this blog series sets up a UAP/UWP project to make use of the file base SQLite database engine. This part creates the project, gathers the required bits and sets up the user interface. Parts three covers the functional code.
This blog is a Tutorial on how to implement Win 10 IoT Universal Apps that make use of Raspberry PI 2 (RPI2) General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) pins. This covers:
The interrupt (event driven) version addresses the InvokeRequired pattern in the XAML context. (Controls can't be updated directly from another thread).
