Getting started with IoT devices is not trivial.

It usually involves lots of tooling, complex connectivity, and more.

Ryan Winter from the Azure IoT Developers and Devices team is creating Getting Started Guide that will walk you through connecting a new device to Azure IoT using the Azure RTOS, and the Azure RTOS IoT middleware in under 30 minutes.

Ryan will even demo one of these guides and will build Azure RTOS on an STMicroelectronics Discovery Kit and connect it to Azure IoT Central in about 5 minutes!

Microsoft IoT Developers’s Olivier Bloch shares his experience with an IoT Starter kit.

I was skeptical, but now stand corrected: you can connect an IoT Starter Kit designed for kids and beginners to Azure IoT Hub with no code, and it definitively is not that hard. See how that’s done with the M5Go IoT Starter Kit from M5Stack, based on an ESP32 chip and using Blocky.

Learn how to develop real-world Internet of Things solutions built with Microsoft Azure services from experts from around the world.

In this single-day event, we will cover topics ranging from IoT device connectivity, IoT data communication strategies, use of artificial intelligence at the edge, data processing considerations for IoT data, and IoT solutions based on the Azure IoT reference architecture. At the end of this event, you will have the knowledge to begin your journey to become a certified Azure IoT Developer!

Azure Defender for IoT is an agentless security solution for Operational Technology (OT) networks incorporating specialized IoT/OT-aware behavioral analytics from Microsoft’s recent acquisition of CyberX.

The new solution enables industrial and critical infrastructure organizations to secure their existing or brownfield devices without any performance impact or changes to existing environments. It’s also deeply integrated with Azure Sentinel and supports 3rd-party tools such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, and ServiceNow.

Have you ever wondered how to build a workplace health & safety solution end-to-end?

Teo De Las Heras from the Azure IoT team joins us to demo and explain the architecture of such as solution built on Azure with IoT services.

Not only will you see the solution at work but you will also learn where you can find the entire solution for you to deploy on your own Azure subscription and use as a demo, or even as the starting point for your own solution.

Azure IoT Plug and Play is now natively supported in IoT Central. Solution builders can develop end-to-end IoT solutions using IoT Central and PnP ready devices with zero code.

This drastically reduces development and deployment costs and overall time to market. ISVs and partners building Line of Business (LOB) applications can rapidly accelerate development by using ready-to-use Plug and Play devices from a wide selection of devices from the Plug and Play certified catalog.

Cellular connectivity for IoT devices and equipment can be transformative for customers, especially when connecting legacy investments. It’s important to understand the options available and the security strategy that goes with them.

Nicholas Chen joins Olivier on the IoT Show to discuss how Azure Sphere allows for secure connection of IoT devices over cellular and what developers should pay attention to.
