Using Github

  • Download Github Desktop
  • Click on the green 'Clone or download' button, and copy the url. Note: if you download the ZIP file, you will miss out on any notifications of updates to the project. But, if you don't want the additional software on your machine, this option is will work fine.
  • Open Github Desktop, click File -> Clone Repository -> Url tab -> Paste the url into the box -> specify the local folder to clone into -> hit 'Clone'
  • If you'd like more information... Github Tutorial


These are not all required. I will show some of them in the video, but if you have tools you prefer that work just fine, by all means use what you like. All of these are freely available.

  • Azure Device Explorer (Helpful if using IoT Hub)
  • Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise, Professional, or (free) Community Edition 16.04 or later; or Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9 or later. To install Visual Studio, select the edition to install and then run the installer. You can install any workloads, or none.
