How does Azure Stack fit in the Internet of Things story? What are the plans to support Azure IoT services on Azure Stack? Rita Cao, PM in the Azure IoT platform team joins Olivier on the IoT show to shed some light on this topic.

Check out this great demo of the new way to configure message routing in Azure IoT Hub using Device Twin properties and the updated UI in the Azure portal.

Paul Montgomery, Senior Software Engineer in the Azure IoT Team shows us how this all works using an ESP32 based microcontroller, a temperature sensor, a glass of hot water and another glass of iced water.

Here are some interesting concepts about data in IoT applications.

Kevin Saye shares with us on the IoT Show: all data has value, data needs to be preserved in its raw form for later usage and you want to store this data in a cost effective manner. Curious about these statements? Watch this very interesting episode about these concepts illustrated with a demo showing Azure Data Lake Analytics used to analyze data from IoT devices collected through Azure IoT Hub.

I recently got a web cam device and when I read the instructions to “place the phone near the camera so that it can listen to the camera” I thought I was dealing with an epic example of mistranslated text.

However, shortly after hearing a series of chirps and beeps reminiscent of R2-D2, the camera was configured.

Well, it turns out that there’s an SDK for that and it works with Azure.

Chirp (https://chirp.io) created enterprise-ready, cross platform SDKs for transmitting data over sound and the Azure IoT team collaborated with Chirp to implement a nice and easy way to setup an MXChip devkit and connect it to Azure IoT Central using just sound.

Collected and predicted data, coupled with the farmer’s knowledge about the farm, can help increase farm productivity and reduce costs. Microsoft already enabled precision farming through FarmBeats and partnerships with solution integrators leveraging the Azure IoT platform and solutions.
Here is an introduction to the upcoming Microsoft’s IoT In Action Agriculture Webinar.

Jean-Sébastien Brunner joins Lara Rubbelke to discuss new features that enable you to implement the intelligent cloud, intelligent edge vision for streaming analytics: Stream Analytics running real-time analytics with custom code on IoT Edge. We also discuss substreams, which is a new time management feature for independently processing the timeline of each device (very useful for an IoT scenario), and the recently announced Session Window.

Nicole Berdy joins Olivier on the IoT Show to demonstrate how the Azure IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service can be used to implement zero-touch provisioning of (a lot of) IoT devices.
