Building IoT Apps with Azure & Particle

Modern connected hardware (or IoT) applications are about more than setting up a microcontroller to read sensors or control actuators. Increasingly, these systems need to connect with other devices, backhaul their data to the cloud, or enable remote updates or commands across large distances. These types of solutions require simple, open, and extensible developer tools, and integrations with popular cloud Platforms.

In this workshop, Paul DeCarlo and Brandon Satrom will share an approach for building IoT applications: using Particle for hardware and backhaul, and Azure IoT Hub and IoT Central to power cloud intelligence. Over the course of this half-day, hands-on session, you’ll learn everything you need to know to build your next connected solution.

Hardware included!

Everyone who registers by November 6th gets a Grove Starter Kit for Particle Mesh and an Argon Kit (with a combined retail cost of $70).
