In this chapter, you've been given an introduction on how to develop apps for the Raspberry Pi using C#. You've learned how to prepare the hardware and how to use the IoT Dashboard to install and configure Windows 10 IoT on the device. You've used the Device Portal to control the applications running on it. You've learned how to extend the functionality of the Raspberry Pi by using Arduino boards. You've configured these with Firmata using the Arduino IDE. You've learned how to create a Universal Windows Platform application to run on the Raspberry Pi, and how to use NuGet packages to add existing software components to your application. You also successfully tested and deployed your application. In the next chapter, you will learn the basics of creating a working sensor.


There are many excellent blog posts on the internet that provide tutorials concerning C# development on the Raspberry Pi. One example of such an article is
