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.
Now Azure IoT Edge for VS Code 1.6.0 has been released with a bunch of new features.
We are proud to announce the availability of the Azure IoT Edge plugin for Jenkins, which provides Jenkins native capability to continuously build IoT Edge solutions and deploy to Azure IoT Edge devices. Depending on your environment, you can choose to use Azure DevOps Services together with Jenkins,
IoT Application Development is naturally more complicated than regular application development, in that even the simplest E2E IoT application involves a long chain from device layer, to communication layer, then to the cloud and beyond. This makes the development especially the testing and debugging difficult.
