@Stannieman: If you install Apple’s Bonjour service (if not it’s a free install from here) and you know the hostname (as you do with a fresh install of Raspbian) you can just PuTTY in to the Pi using the hostname, no IP address needed. You need to copy over a blank ssh file to the boot partition before booting of course.

"it would be really cool if there was an LED that would tell you what IP you have"… there is.. they make a miniature LED screen that attaches to the device and presents the Desktop..sure you can code this to continually provide the network settings.

I’d be happy when the SDK is available for the Pi, so teachers can start learning their students how to program .net core on a Pi, with no other computer needed than the pi itself.

I have been using Unosquare RaspberryIO which comes with a handy SSH deployment utility. It fills most of my needs, even camera support. unosquare.github.io/raspberryio/

Just configure your DHCP server (usually your router) to always give a predefined IP to a device with a certain MAC address. DHCP will never give this IP to any other device and always give this IP to the device with the configured MAC.
