Sometimes all you want to do is concentrate on the solution.
What is if there was a DevKit, that could help you to get familiar with IoT Hub and other IoT services in Azure?
This is the first session in a series I am talking about how to get started with IoT in Azure.
Together with Cloud Lunch and Learn I am going to run a series of sessions focusing on IoT on Azure in February. I am going to end it with a Microsoft Azure IoT Workshop in March.
In Azure, IoT architecture does not need to be separate from rest of the infrastructure in Azure. As a matter of fact, it should be part of it.
