IoT Hub – The Undocumented API

Twist My ARM – Automating Azure using PowerShell

I released my book, Microservice, IoT and Azure, in October of 2015. Within 2 weeks, the Azure PowerShell code samples were out of date. This is a testament to the velocity at which Microsoft is updating both the services and the tools for Azure.

While the concepts in the book are still relevant, the code repository that I had released became out of date quickly. In order to rectify this situation, I recently created a new code repository that leverages the advancements in Azure PowerShell as well as showcases the patterns and practices for end-to-end IoT solutions that leverage IoT Hub.

The new code repository is located here on GitHub.

This content provides foundational knowledge in how to architect and implement an IoT solution using Windows 10 Core IoT hardware devices and Azure IoT Hub and Stream Analytics. Both Device to Cloud and Cloud to Device communication patterns are covered.

At the conclusion of going through the hands-on lab, you will have provisioned an Azure environment using PowerShell that contains Storage, Service Bus, DocumentDb, IoT Hub, Stream Analytics and API Management and a custom microservices for provisioning devices. You will also develop a Windows 10 Core IoT application that sends telemetry and receives incoming commands as well as develop a real-time dashboard that displays incoming telemetry and has the ability to send commands to the remote device. Device Provisioning, IoT Hub monitoring and techniques for applying dynamic business rules to real-time streams is covered.

In this article, I am going to highlight a few interesting Azure PowerShell and Azure Resource Manager techniques that I learned along the way while creating this content. Note that all the code snippets are drawn from the code repository here.

This book provides practical guidance for adopting a high velocity, continuous delivery process to create reliable, scalable, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions that are designed and built using a microservice architecture, deployed to the Azure cloud, and managed through automation. Microservices, IoT, and Azure offers software developers, architects, and operations engineers’ step-by-step directions for building SaaS applications—applications that are available 24×7, work on any device, scale elastically, and are resilient to change–through code, script, exercises, and a working reference implementation.

The book provides a working definition of microservices and contrasts this approach with traditional monolithic Layered Architecture. A fictitious, homebiomedical startup is used to demonstrate microservice architecture and automation capabilities for cross-cutting and business services as well as connected device scenarios for Internet of Things (IoT). Several Azure PaaS services are detailed including Storage, SQL Database, DocumentDb, Redis Cache, Cloud Services, Web API’s, API Management, IoT Hub, IoT Suite, Event Hub, and Stream Analytics. Finally the book looks to the future and examines Service Fabric to see how microservices are becoming the de facto approach to building reliable software in the cloud.

What you’ll learn

  • What microservices are and why are they’re a compelling architecture pattern for SaaS applications
  • How to design, develop, and deploy microservices using Visual Studio, PowerShell, and Azure
  • Microservice patterns for cross-cutting concerns and business capabilities
  • Microservice patterns for Internet of Things and big data analytics solutions using IoT Hub, Event Hub, and Stream Analytics
  • Techniques for automating microservice provisioning, building, and deployment
  • What Service Fabric is and how it’s the future direction for microservices on Microsoft Azure

Who this book is for

Software Application Architects, .NET Developers, Database Admins and DevOps engineers. The sample code provided is a combination of C# and PowerShell.
