Wio Link: Build Internet of Things applications in a new way

Wio Link is an ESP8266 based open-source, Wi-Fi solution to simplify IoT development by virtualizing plug-n-play modules to Web of Things. With the help of Wio Link, You can build up your IoT applications with only 3 steps in 5 minutes!

The traditional methodology of building IoT applications is very challenging, which often consists of electronic engineering, micro-controller programming, network programming, IoT protocols handling and application development. Every step involves various hardware and software knowledge. And this time, Wio Link has redefined a new way to create IoT applications. No hardware programming. No breadboard. No jumper wires. No soldering.

*By now, hardware becomes the new software, and Wio Link is the IoT „SDK“ for programmer.*

It’s done – Windows 10 IoT Core

Ok, mostly done. The Windows 10 IoT Core for the Raspberry Pi 2 and MinnowBoard Max is ready for download in the DevCenter https://dev.windows.com/en-us/iot.

It’s a nice website layout by the way with the welcome text:

“ The Internet of your things

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings together devices, sensors, cloud, data and your imagination.
Build what matters most to you.“
