Chicagoland IT Community - January Events

by Angela 13. January 2016 11:55

It’s a busy month for the Chicagoland IT community. I’ve seen a lot of really great talks just in the next week, and wanted to spread the word! If you’ve never attended events with LCNUG, CNUG, or the Fox Valley Computing Professionals, I highly recommend checking them out.  No matter where you work or live, one of them is bound to be nearby Smile

I’ll be adding to this list as I uncover more, so feel free to let me know if there are some great events that I missed!

Windows 10, IoT, Raspberry Pi 2 with Greg Levenhagen

Lake County .NET Users Group

College of Lake County, Grayslake, IL - Thu, Jan 14, 2016 at 7:00 PM

The Internet of Things has been buzzing for a while. Let's get a little hands on with devices and take away some of the mystery about IoT and Windows 10 IoT Core. We will get a Rasberry Pi 2 running Windows 10 IoT Core and running a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app to do something that we desire.

We want you to bring your Rasberry Pi 2's and let's get them working with Windows 10 IoT Core. Don't have a device, no problem. Greg will be going through things for everyone and you can follow along or maybe join up with another attendee. If you want to follow along on your own hardware instead of observing,

  • Required: Windows 10 on a laptop/surface
  • Required: Visual Studio 2015 on that laptop/surface
  • Required: An ethernet cable to connect the Pi directly to your laptop/surface. You may need to have an adapter to plug the ethernet cable into your laptop.
  • Optional: An HDMI cable and a Monitor if you want to display the UWP app. You don't need this to get things working.

The other pieces are not time consuming to download/install and they will be available on USB sticks.
