IoT Developer: Tooling and Experience

New year, new experience and new sample for Azure IoT Device Workbench

Together with the new Azure IoT Tools for VS Code extension pack, we also overhauled the experience of Azure IoT Device Workbench. And there is another exciting sample contributed by Chris Lovett (Github) from Microsoft Research about running Embedded Learning Library (ELL) on MXChip IoT DevKit to achieve the keyword spotting locally.

Azure IoT Edge development

Easily develop and debug Azure IoT Edge C modules with Azure IoT Edge Tools (Preview) 0.3.1

With 0.3.1 release of Azure IoT Edge Tools (Preview), you can use Visual Studio 2017 to develop and debug C modules for Azure IoT Edge.

Prerequisites

  • OS: Windows 10 with 1809 update
  • Visual Studio 2017 with update 7 or later,
Easily build and debug IoT Edge modules on your remote device with Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.9.0.

Recently, both Docker and Moby engine support SSH connection, which means you can connect a remote Docker engine more easily than before. In Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.9.0, we introduced a new extension setting(azure-iot-edge.executor.env) to inject environment variables into VS Code terminals.

Azure IoT Hub

Read Azure IoT Hub device-to-cloud messages from the built-in and custom endpoints

IoT Hub Message Routing enables users to route device-to-cloud messages to service-facing endpoints. An IoT hub has a default built-in endpoint. You can create custom endpoints to route messages to by linking other services in your subscription to the hub.

Diagnose issues with Distributed Tracing for Azure IoT Hub (preview) in Visual Studio Code 

Effective monitoring is instrumental in understanding and troubleshooting your modern cloud solution leveraging multiple services. Distributed tracing helps you diagnose issues in your cloud solution by providing the capability to track the flow of a call and the associated latency across these different services.
