Azure IoT Using Node.js

Jeremy Foster - Developer Evangelist Microsoft

It’s awesome being able to run Node.js on little IoT devices, but when you hook all of these chatty, little devices up to a classic server architecture such as a node server or even a node cluster, there’s a really good chance it’s going to fall over with a thud. Modern architectures need to have secure device identification, massive ingest, and the ability to speak bi-directionally. Oh, and it would be good too if implementing all of this doesn’t have to feel like brain surgery and would allow us to use Node.js end to end.

Enter Azure IoT services. In this presentation, we’ll look at the basic Azure IoT service, how to quickly implement, manage, and use it from the command line, from simulated devices, from real devices, and from other cloud services. We do more than talk about it too. We’ll write it all out in terse, node goodness.

Jeremy studied Computer Engineering and Mathematics in school a long time ago, and has thoroughly enjoyed his career course ever since - primarily teaching and software development and primarily on the web stack. He gained experience in education, aerospace manufacturing, and insurance, and eventually joined Microsoft with the goal of informing and inspiring software developers. He authored his first book CSS for Windows 8 App Development, published a couple of courses on, and tries to keep up with audiences via his blog,, and his Twitter feed, @codefoster. When he’s not working, he’s working on maker projects, spending time with his wife and two sons, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, or working on house projects.
