Module 2: First Steps with Torizon

 

Overview

In this module, you will get used to the experience of using Torizon. Run some basic applications, easily serve a static webpage, use our ease-of-use Debian application, develop a hello world application on Visual Studio using our Torizon Microsoft Environment, cross-build it for a target device and deploy and debug it remotely.

Note: Even though it is possible to follow most of this Getting Started Guide as well as develop for Torizon with a Linux host machine, in this training modules the host computer is running the regular 64-bit installation of Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise/Education. It is highly recommended that you use the same setup since possible issues with Virtual Machines or other Operating Systems are not discussed.

Warning: Docker makes user of Hyper-V. It means that for a good experience, you need a computer with Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise or Education. The version of Windows 10 Home does not support Hyper-V and is not recommended.

Warning: Follow precautions for handling electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD)
