The Internet of your things

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings together devices, sensors, cloud, data and your imagination.

Adafruit has created a Starter Pack for Windows 10 IoT Core. The pack includes compatible components, sensors, and parts that you can use to start making exciting projects.

Rapidly prototype and build your Windows IoT solutions on a variety of devices running Windows 10 IoT Core. Windows 10 gives you powerful tools that let you develop fast and deploy to your device.

Leverage the power of open frameworks like Connect-the-Dots to help connect your devices to Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure allows you to implement great solutions by leveraging advanced analytics services.

Connect with other makers to share code and make contributions through GitHub. Join the community to see what others are building and influence future releases of the SDK.
