This post is related to my first personal experiment using IoT DevKit AZ3166 and Azure IoT Central, so I could have a feeling on how easy would be to build a simple IoT application that would connect to Azure to report data and also to use the Azure Services available.

During December of 2019, two Azure MVPs, Gregor Suttie and Richard Hooper are running an amazing initiative called the Azure Advent Calendar.

These videos are for those new to Azure and all the way through to the expert level. This initiative enables you to access relevant Azure content in an easy and quick way for you to get new or refresh your knowledge on some of these services.
