Azure IoT Central: Build Your Weekend Prototype


Who should take this course?

  • You’ve got a project idea but find cloud services intimidating
  • You are curious about the field and want to learn by building something fun, rather than watching hours of dull power-point presentations.
  • You have some smart home ideas that you’d like to build but have no clue where to start.
  • Tinkerers who already have some microcontrollers reading from sensors but looking to understand how to use the cloud to enhance their project.

In this course, I teach you how to start an internet of things side project that can scale by leveraging the power of the cloud.

What will you learn?

  • Core concepts behind the buzzwords IoT & Cloud.
  • Review real-life industry examples and brainstorm on products of your own.
  • Understand the Microsoft Azure IoT stack of services and know which to provision depending on your use case.
  • Build your first end-to-end no-code prototype using sensor data already available in your home (no additional hardware/electronics purchases are required for this course).
  • Set up a pipeline that ingests data from the real world, provides insights through a customizable front end, and delivers notifications based on custom rules.
  • Join a community of IoT tinkerers looking to make their projects a reality by deploying and configuring Azure IoT Central Applications
