A trend that has been talked about a lot lately is the Internet of Things, which is the emergence of a category of small devices capable of connecting to the Internet, and at the same time fulfilling the role of everyday objects. Microsoft wants Windows as a platform to also be present on these devices, so today they have launched a developer kit to allow the creation of applications that take advantage of the characteristics of these devices.
Developers who participate in this program will receive an Intel Galileo board and a copy of Windows adapted to work on that board and to support a set of useful APIs for working with devices with sensors and internet connectivity.
Of course, Microsoft warns us that this program is in a very incipient phase, and that the objective of these first tools is rather to collect feedback and do a proof of concept. From the information they obtain, they will launch new tools in the future, which will be more polished and offer more functionalities.
