Microsoft Azure IoT Developer
This course provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to successfully create and maintain the cloud and edge parts of an Azure IoT solution. The course includes comprehensive coverage of core Azure IoT services such as IoT Hub, device provisioning services, Azure Stream Analytics, Time Series Insights and more. In addition to focusing on Azure PaaS services, the course includes sections on IoT Edge, device management, monitoring and troubleshooting, security issues, Azure Digital Twins, and Azure IoT Central.
The course includes didactic workshops in which each student will be able to work for the purpose of completing formative exercises that will provide hands-on experience in the use of the instrument, for each of the topics covered during the course.
Who should attend
An Azure IoT Developer is responsible for the implementation and code required to create and maintain the cloud and edge part of an IoT solution. In addition to configuring and maintaining the devices using Azure IoT services and other Microsoft tools, the IoT Developer also sets up the physical devices and is responsible for maintaining the devices throughout the lifecycle. The IoT Developer implements designs for IoT solutions, including device topology, connectivity, debugging, and security. For Edge device scenarios, the IoT Developer also implements compute/container and configures device networking, which could include various edge gateway implementations. The IoT Developer implements designs for data pipeline solutions, including IoT-related data monitoring and transformation. The IoT Developer works with data engineers and other stakeholders to ensure successful enterprise integration. IoT Developers must have a good understanding of Azure services, including data storage options, data analytics, data processing, and Azure IoT PaaS versus SaaS options. IoT Developers must have basic programming skills in at least one language supported by Azure, including C#, Node.js, C, Python or Java.
To successfully complete the course, learners must have:
- Awareness of cloud solutions: learners should have experience using the Azure portal and a basic understanding of PaaS, SaaS and IaaS implementations.
- Software development experience: software development experience is a prerequisite for this course, but no specific software language is required and experience need not be at a professional level.
- Data processing experience: general understanding of data storage and processing is recommended but not required.
