We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Open source C# wrapper for Windows Device Portal REST API
I'm happy to let you all know that we have just opened a project on GitHub that makes calling the Windows Device Portal REST APIs easy using C#. Currently, about 80% of the APIs are wrapped with the remainder coming soon. The project currently supports HoloLens, Xbox One, Windows 10 Desktop and IoT devices. The project creates assemblies for the Universal Windows Platform and .net 4.5.2 (and later).
These APIs are useful in creating tools that can monitor and control devices remotely. For example, you could build an application automates the installation and launching of an application to a bank of devices in your lab.
You can clone the repository from https://github.com/Microsoft/WindowsDevicePortalWrapper.
We hope you find this useful and welcome your contributions.
