In our previous post Handy Tool When You Develop With Azure IoT, we introduced Azure IoT Toolkit extension, which provides some key features that help IoT developers to easily interact with Azure IoT Hub. Now we released a new version v0.6.0 and glad to share the news that the extension has been open sourced on GitHub!
It’s been around 4 months since we release our official hardware and SDK as v1.0 last September right on Ignite 2017. In that event, the MXChip IoT DevKit was used on a couple of Azure IoT break-out and keynote sessions for demonstrations and together with announcement with new services released such as IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service.
DevKit is available for pre-ordering
During the past two months, we have been keeping sending out preview IoT DevKit for evaluation to a selective group of requestors. And we see increasing demand for the kits from developers around the world, from Canada to Brazil,
After a month work of stabilizing the code, fixing bugs and adding more samples, we are happy to release the v1.0.0 for our IoT DevKit. You can download the latest package by following the get started guide or from direct link here.
Have you ever wanted to try IoT development but had no device at hand? From a recent survey, more than 70% developers who come to learn Azure IoT don’t have a physical device so that they can not go on from the beginning.
At //Build 2017, Microsoft Azure made several announcements related to get started development experience with Azure IoT. Based on customers’ feedback, most of the developers are focusing on the device-cloud connectivity. Today, you can find more uniformed tutorials about how to connect your devices to Azure IoT and other Azure cloud services.
Last week, we participated in Microsoft’s annual developer conference //build 2017. We were super excited to present our first preview version of the MXChip IoT Developer Kit, an Arduino compatible board with rich peripherals that uses Visual Studio Code for development.
This post first explains the different connection strings in Azure IoT Hub, then gives a simple IoT Hub solution Integrate Azure Functions with Azure IoT Hub using all three connection strings.
There’re three types of connection strings in Azure IoT Hub:
IoT Hub connection string
IoT Hub’s Event Hub-compatible connection string
IoT Hub device connection string
IoT Hub Connection String
Used mainly for device registration/un-registration.
Have you ever considered connecting your IoT device to the cloud? Or did you want to build a small IoT solution with your devices and sensors? Now Azure IoT provides you a series of scenario-based tutorials that can help jump start your IoT journey with Azure and Azure IoT Hub.
Learning how to develop an IoT (Internet of Things) application on Azure has never been easier! It is no longer a painful journey!
There is a “Happy Path” that, without requiring the developer to be well trained on both device and cloud ends,
