​Raspberry Pi simulator lets you start tinkering without even owning a Pi – TechRepublic

Microsoft is building an online Raspberry Pi simulator that allows Makers to write code to control hardware… even without owning a board.

At present, the simulator is in ‘preview’ and is quite rudimentary.

    Microsoft Is Creating a Free, Online Raspberry Pi Simulator

    Good news for the Maker community. Microsoft has released a free online tool for prototyping Raspberry Pi projects. And the whole thing is open source.

    However the big draw for this simulator will be that Microsoft has made it completely open source. The source code is already available through GitHub so it may only be matter of time before the open source community starts adding its own sensors, components, and other functions to the project ahead of Microsoft.

    Users will need a Microsoft Azure account to take full advantage of the simulator. Right now the setup process is far from straightforward but Microsoft has provided an online guide to help with the process. There is also a demo of the simulator available.

    Connect Raspberry Pi online simulator to Azure IoT Hub (Node.js)
