A modularisation of the Generic Bluetooth Serial App extracting out all of the UI functionality. Received serial messages are interpreted as Phone Keypad events. Depends upon KeypadUWPLib as it fires the keypad events based upon received messages.

An event driven Phone Keypad library. Includes KeyDown, KeyUp and KeyHoldling events to which event handlers can be attached in apps that use this library. Also includes a mechanism to fire those events from keypad scanning software. No hardware specific code though. These events mirror those events in the previous blog for the Arduino Keypad Event Scanning Sketch. The next blog hooks the two up.
This blog demonstrates exemplary code for for implementing event table mechanisms for custom events, particularly if the events are driven by custom hardware.
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

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.
