Today, we are bridging the gap between Windows 10 and .NET Gadgeteer. With the all new FEZ Cream, many of the .NET Gadgeteer modules can be plugged right onto a Raspberry Pi 2 with no soldering and no enclosure restrictions. Thanks to the cables, modules can be mounted anywhere inside an enclosure or a 3D printed design.
As for the software it is just as easy. We are combining the FEZ Cream with our Gadgeteering core and drivers for many of the available modules. Just include the driver for a module, plug it in, and you are ready to use.
The software is separate from the .NET Gadgeteer core for now. We are working with Microsoft on the next version of .NET Gadgeteer core software. Something leaner for smaller devices, yet fully featured for Windows 10 devices. We want to see full integration with Visual Studio, just like how it is for today's NETMF devices.
So grab a FEZ Cream HAT today and do not forget about grabbing a few .NET Gadgeteer modules...build an amazing Internet of Things (IoT) project that talks to Azure and share it with the community. This is how we can convince Microsoft to work harder on .NET Gadgeteer!
