MkeAzure Slides: Getting Started with IoT using Azure, Windows IoT and Raspberry Pi

On Aug 17, 2016 I gave a "Getting Started with IoT" talk at the Milwaukee Azure group. In my talk I covered the basics of IoT Messaging Architecture and Azure IoT Suite (specifically IoT Hub and Stream Analytics), along with other Azure services such as Service Bus Queus, DocumentDB, and Azure Functions. No, IoT solution…Read more MkeAzure Slides: Getting Started with IoT using Azure, Windows IoT and Raspberry Pi

Messaging Architecture: What is AMQP?

Messaging has become pretty fundamental with the wider adoption of Microservices and other cloud design pattern. There are many ways to transmit a message. Many messaging systems today, like Azure Service Bus, use a protocol called AMQP, or the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol. While AMQP is used behind the scene in messaging systems, let's explore a…Read more Messaging Architecture: What is AMQP?

Azure Storage Explorer now supports Linux and more

When the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer was first released, it did seem a little odd that Microsoft would neglect supporting Linux. However, they did support both Windows and Mac OSX initially. In good news, there have been a number of updates to the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer announced with a short roadmap of what's to…Read more Azure Storage Explorer now supports Linux and more

Using Azure Storage Queues from .NET

Azure Storage Queues provide an easy to implement messaging communication mechanism for reliably passing messages to/from different components of a single application or multiple applications. Storage Queues have an HTTP/HTTPS API to allow for support of any development platform; however, Microsoft does provide a .NET SDK to make it even easier to implement from C#…Read more Using Azure Storage Queues from .NET

Using Azure Service Bus Queues from .NET

The Azure Service Bus Queue feature offers easy to implement infrastructure for implementing brokered messaging communication. Implementing a Message Queue requires the implementation of at least two application components: a Sender and a Receiver. The Sender will send messages to the Queue, while the Receiver will pull messages from the Queue to take action on.…Read more Using Azure Service Bus Queues from .NET

Azure Service Bus

What is Azure Service Bus?

Microsoft Azure Service Bus provides an PaaS (Platform as a Service) communications platform built to allow more robust, multi-tenant software systems to be built in the cloud. There are four main feature sets within Azure Service Bus (Queues, Topics, Relays, and Event Hubs) that all offer different communications mediums for use with and between the…Read more What is Azure Service Bus?
