An introduction to Azure IoT

English Intermediate Internet of Things

An introduction to the Azure IoT services and how Azure allows for devices to connect and send metric data to the cloud or even buffer this data until the cloud is reachable. We start with an IoT Reference Architecture, and then look at how different Azure services make a simple or even complex design happen. Azure provides services to query, analyze and route this IoT data (and there can be lots of it) to hot or cold paths for immediate or long-term analysis respectively and provides for multiple endpoints where this data can be visualized and consumed. Actions can be taken to perform management tasks like Firmware updates or simply a reboot. After attending this session, you will be able to Talk "Azure IoT" and would have been introduced to the different services that make up an Azure IoT implementation.


Johan Myburgh

Azure Technical Trainer (MSFT)

I am passionate about people, process and technology and I spend all my time training customers and partners to use and manage the many cloud services Microsoft has to offer in the Azure space. Training and sharing knowledge is a core passion of mine and I enjoy connecting with people both in person and in a Teams call. I love getting my head around a new piece of technology or software and figuring out analogies to explain the features and benefits and imparting this knowledge in a way that even non-technical people can understand.
