Free Workshop: Adventures With SparkFun And Azure IoT


Free full-day workshop • June 12th
Learn how to leverage Microsoft Azure IoT Hub and a WiFi enabled ESP8266 microcontroller to obtain sensor data and start solving problems in the real world. IoT Hub is a powerful and easy way to establish reliable, bi-directional communications with internet-enabled devices. Learn about the different ways you can measure a physical quantity such as light or temperature and record it for further analysis and visualization in your application.

Attendees will receive a SparkFun Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kit to take home for future experiments! Spots are limited, so register now!
