Did you join the Windows Developer Program for IoT and now you are waiting for the board or have ordered an Intel Galileo (Gen2) on which you will load the Windows image made available on the official website ? Are you waiting for the board but you are curious to know what are the components included in the Windows for IoT ?
There is a solution !

One of the main features of an “object” in the Internet of Things world is its ability to exchange messages, sending data or receiving commands, as effectively and efficiently as possible. There are several standard protocols for this purpose but one of my favorites is MQTT.
Yesterday, I got my kit with the Intel Galileo board with "Windows for IoT" and of course, as a child who has a new toy in his hands, I started to play !
The easiest thing is to follow the online documentation, accessible from the official Windows On Devices website, which describes step by step how to be "up and running" in a few minutes. My desire to do drove me to make a "mistake" that didn’t allow me to finish the procedure correctly. What happened ?
After turning on the Galileo, connecting it to the PC and browsing through the folders (both with a telnet session as "network shared"), I decided to develop the first example for the blinking LED. I opened Visual Studio 2013, selected the C++ project template for Windows for IoT, and finallty started the build without any changes but .... here was the error !
Arduino.h file not found ? How it is possible ? Isn’t it installed with the SDK that we have to download from the Microsoft Connect site ? No, it isn&rsqu ...
Although it was announced immediately after the Build 2014 and O'Reilly Solid , the "Windows Developer Program for IoT" was officially started yesterday !
The announcement was made by the program manager, Steve Teixeira, on the Windows blog highlighting the launch of the new Windows Developer for IoT portal and the beginning of the shipping of the evaluation kit consisting of the Intel Galileo board with a specific version of Windows that supports the Arduino APIs and a subset of the Win32 API.
Also, on the Microsoft Open Technologies website it is specified that the SDK will soon be released in part as open source.
For those who were already enrolled in the program, they have to wait for the kit that will arrive at home very soon but can start to take a tour on the new portal that already provides all the information related to SDK with the sample applications !
