Building an Information Display Solution with Azure IoT Hub

As the title suggests, this course is about building an information display solution using Azure IoT Hub. However, it’s more than just that. If you’re new to IoT with Azure, then you probably have a lot of questions; though there are probably even more questions that you just don’t know to ask yet. That’s where I hope this course will help.

I find that I always learn best by diving right into a new technology and trying to build something for myself. Along the way, I’ll start forming a lot of questions. That’s what we’re going to do in this course; I want you to think of this course as a sort of pair programming exercise. We’re going to go through this project together and build out a working prototype. Our end objective is have a device that we can connect to a monitor, and be able to remotely set the image that will be displayed.

If you want to follow along, or just try this out for yourself, you can find the code here.
