Beer IoT: Building Universal Windows Application to monitor cooling process

Our beer cooling solution is not controllable through IoT Hub and it reports data there. We can control our device through simple command line application but it is not enough for us. In this post we start building Universal Windows Application that helps us monitor temperatures. In this post we focus on mobile application.

Beer IoT: Visualizing sensors data using Power BI

We are eager to try out our beer cooling solution and we want to see it in action. We want to visualize our data and keep eye on temperature of cooling beer. Before doing anything more complex like building web or mobile app we make a quick shortcut and bring our data to web, desktop and mobile. This post is about Power BI in action.

Beer IoT: Using Stream Analytics to save data from IoT Hub to SQL database

When cooling beer we want to store history of temperatures for two reasons. First, it gives us valuable history data for next cooling sessions. As a second thing we can ask measurements when we temporarily lost connection with IoT Hub. In this posting we make some analyzis and then build up database for our beer cooling solution.

Beer IoT: Reporting measurements to Azure IoT Hub

As we have now fully functioning thermal solution running on Windows 10 IoT Core it’s time to focus to other components of our beer freezing solution. Our solution measures and calculates metrics of cooling beer but it doesn’t report this data anywhere. In this blog post we will set up Azure IoT Hub for our solution so it starts reporting measurements to Microsoft Azure.

Beer IoT: Moving to ITemperatureClient interface

My previous blog post “Measuring temperature with Windows 10 IoT Core and Raspberry Pi” introduced you my simple solution for measuring temperatures. In this blog post we go step further and make some modifications to solution architecture so we don’t have to keep sensors connected all the time and as a result we can also emulate temperatures and situations that are not easy to produce in home or office.

New presentations: Application Insights, Azure Search and Windows 10 IoT

I’m glad to announce some new presentations for conferences happening next year. I have held strong research focus lately on Microsoft Azure and Windows IoT and therefore my new presentations cover mostly these topics. All these new presentations are in big part technical demos that illustrate technologies mentioned.
