Earlier this week, we reported that Microsoft is giving away Intel Galileo board to developers who sign up for the program. Today, Microsoft detailed the roll out of the program on their official blog. Microsoft has updated their website Windowsondevices.com withSDK document and examples.
Through this program we are introducing a new Windows Developer for IoT Portal, with documentation and examples to support the developer kits we are starting to ship in small batches. These developer kits include a Galileo board and preview Windows image that supports the standard Arduino Wiring API set and a subset of Win32 API. This Windows image does not yet support Galileo boards outside of our program.
If you have already signed-up for the program and didn’t receive any shipping information, you have to wait for your chance.
We are rolling out this new program gradually to make sure that everything is working well and we’re able to provide the right level of support. We plan to ship a couple of hundred kits each week this summer and continue adding more templates and guidance to the Developer Portal.
