IoT sessions on Microsoft Ignite 2018

Last week, the Microsoft Ignite event was held in Orlando.

Among others, lots of IoT related sessions were given. Most of these sessions are recorded.

Here is an unsorted, random list of IoT related sessions.

Upgrading your Azure IoT Edge device remotely to the latest release

Last week, the Microsoft Ignite event was hosted in Orlando. As with every Microsoft Event, a lot of new stuff is released by the Microsoft product teams.

The same goes for the IoT Edge runtime, the portal and the logic running on IoT Edge.

The IoT Edge runtime bumped up to version 1.0.2 and there are lots of new features introduced like extended offline operation and proxy support.

And there a lot of bugfixes which is always good 🙂

But the documentation considering the update of your gateways is a bit limited.

If I follow the update procedure, I have to update it on the machine itself.

Let’s check out how we update our runtime remotely.

GABC – Atos Amstelveen zaterdag 21 april 2018

“Intelligent Cloud, Intelligent Edge”

logo-2018-500x444

Voor het derde jaar op rij organiseert Atos de gratis Global Azure Bootcamp op haar hoofdkantoor te Amstelveen.

Aanmelden doe je hier!

Traditioneel ligt bij ons de focus op IoT en dus passeren alle mogelijkheden die Microsoft Azure op dit vlak biedt. Er worden naast presentaties ook verschillende workshops gegeven. En natuurlijk is er voldoende tijd om ook met onze Azure IoT platform experts van gedachten te wisselen. Of je nu vragen hebt over Domotica, Lora, Windows 10 IoT Core of industriële IoT, we gaan samen op zoek naar het antwoord.

De agenda voor de dag ziet er als volgt uit:

9.30 Inloop + ontvangst

10.00 Opening

12.00 Lunch

15.30 Tombola + Afsluiting met een hapje en drankje

Tussendoor zijn er meerdere labs, workshops en natuurlijk presentaties over IoT.

Nieuw is de door ons ontwikkelde workshop waarbij jouw laptop in een Edge gateway verandert. Hierbij krijgt je de opdracht om op eenvoudige wijze data uit een industrieel Modbus protocol naar de Cloud te brengen.

En we hebben wederom de workshop rond Lora en Azure op het programma staan.

Neem je laptop dus zeker mee. Voor de labs en workshops is een installatie van Visual Studio 2017 of Visual Code nodig en een Azure Account. Wie nog geen Azure account heeft krijgt zonder verdere verplichtingen de beschikking over een trial licentie.

IoT at Microsoft Ignite 2017

The Microsoft Ignite just finished and what show it was again!

The Microsoft Ignite was held in Orlando and it’s a great event for Enterprise developers and IT Pros.

But if you are IoT minded like me, it’s also a great event regarding Windows 10 IoT and azure IoT.

And the best news is, a lot of break-out sessions are recorded and available already.

I counted 50+ Breakout sessions, Hands-on labs, Meetups, Microsoft Cloud Show en even a Cert Exam Prep. And there is also an Ignite channel on youtube.

Here are the videos and slides of sessions which are already available (or are available soon, only a teaser is shown on the page)

The Things Network bridge revisited

A few month ago, I wrote about how to collect telemetry from The Things Network back-end and send them to an Azure IoT Hub.

The code was simple and it only provided telemetry for one device. But the technology used, was working.

Last month, I was involved in creating a workshop for the TechDays 2016 in Amsterdam. The two-hour workshop gives a good impression how to build an IoT Backend in Azure. During this workshop, we used a NodeJs bridge to pass the telemetry to Azure.

This bridge is available at using the NPM package installer: npm install –save ttn-azure-iothub@preview

I got inspired by this bridge and now I have rebuilt my bridge to handle multiple devices and more!

Azure IoT Hub video’s at Microsoft Ignite Australia 2015

One of my biggest resources of knowledge about Software Development is Channel 9 from Microsoft.

My second best source is visiting meeting, seminars, events, etc. But this is not always possible 🙂

fatfight3 Get it on Windows 10

But MSFT is so kind to provide video’s from sessions presented at their  events. And recently they had an Ignite in Australia.

Here is a slide from one of them with all the IoT sessions.

igniteaus2015

I looked them up and these are the links:

Internet of Your Things: Starting with the end in mind (video)

Windows IoT, UWP and the Remote Wiring API (Video) (Sourcecode)

Windows 10 for IoT: What is it and how do you develop for it (Just the PPT)

Connecting Your Devices to the Azure IoT Hub (video)

Seamless bi-directional communication between devices and Azure IoT Hub via Azure IoT Protocol Gateway (video)

But the video “Create the Internet of your things: The Microsoft IoT Suite” from Ulrich Homann is missing. Can somebody call him to get it fixed? Thanks. (perhaps this session from may 2015 has the same information?)

The reason to put the links here is because the search engine of Channel 9 would not provide these as a collection. It is a good thing some presenters take time to put a slide like this one in their presentation.

Update: The video “Windows 10 for IoT” is now not actually shown at https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Ignite/Australia-2015/MOB111 which is the wrong Channel 9 page. The advertisement image is shown (MOB324) which seems to be the first still from the High-definition video. So download that one (it’s 3+ Gb) and you can enjoy MOB324.

Update 2: There is another video from Ignite in may 2015 about the Alljoyn / Allseen commitment. In my opinion Alljoyn is brilliant for accessing devices over the local network using this consumer/producer relationship.
