IoT Fundamentals - Global Azure Bootcamp 2018 - Malta


Published on

During the IoT Fundamentals session, we started by covering "What is IoT" and why should we use it. We learned some statistics about IoT devices, and also analysed Real World IoT solutions, explaining which technologies were used. Then we delved into Microsoft Azure and start exploring IoT related features, including IoT Hub, Device Twins, Device Simulation from Azure IoT Suite, and Time Series Insights.

During the Hands-on Lab, we setup an IoT Hub, provisioned an MxChip and also simulated devices to send Telemetry data back to IoT Hub. Finally we visualised all the data received from our devices (real and simulated) on Time Series Insights. Also we had a last minute addition regarding the Azure Sphere, which was launched in the same week as the Global Azure Bootcamp!
