Interested in rapidly building enterprise-grade IoT applications on a secure, reliable, and scalable infrastructure? This path is the place to start to learn how to build IoT solutions with Azure IoT Central. IoT Central is an IoT application platform that reduces the burden and cost of developing, managing, and maintaining enterprise-grade IoT solutions.

In this learning path, you will:

  • Learn how to connect devices and create an Azure IoT Central application
  • Learn how to set up rules and take action on telemetry data in Azure IoT central
  • Learn how to manage IoT Central applications with the REST API

Once you complete this learning path, you will understand how to build IoT solutions with Azure IoT Central.

Modules in this learning path

This module builds an IoT Central app to monitor and command a refrigerated truck. After you create the app, you define a device template for a refrigerated truck. You then create a programming project, add code to simulate a truck, and communicate with your IoT Central app. You monitor the truck by using a custom dashboard.

This module builds an IoT Central app to monitor and command a refrigerated truck. We build the IoT Central app from a downloaded JSON file, defining all the device capabilities. Source code is also downloaded for the device app. The focus of this module is on creating rules and actions, to respond to certain telemetry input. Rules and actions enable greater automation of an IoT Central system.

The IoT Central REST API lets you manage applications programmatically. For example, you can add device templates, create devices, set device properties, send commands to devices, and manage data exports.

This module covers continuous data export from IoT Central. You use the scenario from your previously completed "Create your first Azure IoT Central app" Learn module, where you controlled a refrigerated truck. Here, in this module, you add continuous data export to both Azure Blob storage and an event hub. You then build a Power BI app to read and display the telemetry data on a mobile phone.
