Raspberry Pi – GPIO & C#

A while back I bought the Raspberry Pi YouTube Workshop Kit from the nice people at ModMyPi. The main thing that put me off it is I HATE PYTHON but not to worry, Microsoft have given us Windows IoT Core. Unfortunately I found the documentation somewhat lacking, so I've written my own.

This series is similar to the one produced by Matt from the Raspberry Pi for Beginners YouTube Channel. His series of 10 step by step tutorials videos, take you from creating your very first programme and wiring in LEDs, buttons and buzzers, to more complex component coding with a digital thermometer, light dependent resistor and motion sensor but he uses python. To compliment the YouTube series, ModMyPi put together the YouTube workshop kit which includes all the components necessary to follow the 10 video guide from start to finish.

So using C# and Windows IoT my tutorials build up to gradually construct a large circuit out of all the parts. I'll demonstrate how to wire in multiple components at the same time, to save having to re-wire each project individually, which means you can go as fast or as slow with the tutorials as you want! Perfect for beginners, educators, or anyone interested in experimenting with electronics and the Raspberry Pi.

For the next nine tutorials your are going to need the following :-

  • Windows 10 PC + SD card reader
    Windows 10 is a requirement because all the software for Windows IoT needs it, like Visual Studio 2015. I'll be using the Community edition, and also the Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard the best resource for setting this up can be found on the Microsoft web site.
  • Rasberry Pi B 2
    I'm sure most of these tutorials could be done for other boards but you'll have to figure out any changes yourself.
  • Raspberry Pi YouTube Workshop Kit
    You don't have to buy the kit but I'll only be using parts from this kit so it helps to have everything all from one place.
