Modules in this learning path

This module is an introduction to the Internet of Things for IT admins.

The focus of this module is on creating a Device Provisioning Service (DPS) to securely handle multiple remote devices. First, you create an IoT Hub, and add the DPS service. Next, an X.509 root certificate, and multiple leaf certificates, are created to handle security. Code for a simulated device is provided. You then link all the pieces together, and verify that your DPS resource works. After completing the module, you should have a good understanding of how to provision Azure IoT devices at scale.

Learn about Azure IoT Hub message routing, and Stream Analytics anomaly detection. Start by creating an app that simulates issues with conveyor belt vibration. Then, use the Azure portal to route all the data for archiving in blob storage. Finish by routing the vibration data to anomaly detection, using a built-in ML model.

Create an IoT Hub device app, and a back-end service app. As a scenario, we use the monitoring, and controlling, of the temperature and humidity of a cheese cave.

Automate IoT devices management with Azure IoT Hub

Learn about metrics, alerts, diagnostics, and logs. Create an Azure IoT Hub, an app to send vibration telemetry, and then create and test some metrics and alerts.
