Microsoft.IoT.Galileo.Arduino Nuget package

This repository is for generating the Windows Developer Program for IoT Nuget package. This package contains code which is compiled into the maker's application which can be deployed to a board running Microsoft Windows.

This nuget package depends on Microsoft.IoT.SDKFromArduino, which contains source files written by the Arduino community. Together these packages ensure compatibility with existing sketches running on Microsoft Windows.

Configure Visual Studio

You'll want to redirect visual studio's user templates to the repository you are working in. Tools -> Options

Template Config
