How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

deploy apps to my Windows 10 mobile device from VS

I have been trying to get my son into programming and so far his dev experience has been less than exciting. He wants to debug his game real time, but the emulator is a pain to deal with forces and gps etc. Allegedly this works, however, I have found thread after thread of people looking for a real solution but no one appears to make any headway because VS gives useless feedback. I have spent an entire day trying to get something, anything working. if I choose device, I get a generic error (vie tried every suggestion I can find online), if I choose remote machine I am prompted for a pin, so I go into the "for devs" page on my device and I hit pair and I get a 6 digit pin. that pin doesn't work though so the pin screen wont go away.

I was able to finally build an app package that I can manually move o the device in the portal, but I shouldn't have to do that, and it breaks the debug chain.
