This post may seem a bit off-topic, but for the past several years, when I’m not building Angular and ASP.NET applications, I’ve been working in the Internet of Things. Microsoft Azure IoT Hub has been a game-changer in this space, and my latest Pluralsight course, Azure IoT Hub for Developers: Getting Started, was crafted to help you get up to speed with it quickly.
So if you’re a web developer, why should you care about IoT? It’s just one more thing to try and learn, right?
Well, there are actually about 2 trillion reasons: IoT, as the Internet of Things is commonly know, is predicted to enable roughly 2 TRILLION (with a T) dollars in productivity improvements by 2022. source
Security spending related to IoT alone will surpass 3 billion by 2021. source
And Microsoft is throwing money at IoT, too, to the tune of 5 billion by 2022. source
That’s why you should care about IoT: there’s going to be a tremendous amount of money spent in this area, which means new opportunities for you as a developer!
Besides the money and new opportunities, building IoT solutions is just a ton of fun. There’s something incredibly satisfying about wiring a device together, then communicating with it remotely via IoT Hub.
What You’ll Learn
My course is meant to give you a solid foundation on both the device-side and cloud-side of things. Topics you’ll learn about include:
- Azure IoT Hub itself
- Creating a (virtual) device application with .NET Core
- Sending commands and messages
- Processing messages using IoT Hub
By the end of the course, you’ll have a solid foundation for building a solution on Microsoft Azure IoT Hub.
So give it a try, and let me know what you think of this course!
I loved the course, totally worth it 🙂 Would keep an eye on your blog to see if you share some of your experiences with IOT projects.
Thanks! Are there any specific topics you’d be interested in hearing more about?
