During the last couple of years I have noticed more and more developers switching to Mac, especially among those in the SharePoint field that traditionally have been very loyal to Microsoft. I see a correlation between this and the trend away from Visual Studio bound development. After playing around with NodeJS for awhile I understand why and hope for a change. Hopefully I can save you some googling with the links in this post if you run into the same issues as I have.
Having run my home office monitoring service for more than a month, I can now reflect back on the project. Even though I have an MSDN subscription trough work with a bunch of Azure credit included to spend every month, I decided to use a Pay-As-You-Go subscription for this project. I wanted to be sure that the services I used was available to me even if I would loose the MSDN subscription.
This is a summary post of my exploration of Internet of Things. A small hobby project I have used to learn new technologies slightly outside my comfort zone. My IoT Exploration – Part 1 – The Failure My IoT Exploration – Part 2 – Raspberry Pi Sense HAT My IoT Exploration – Part 3 – Sending Data to Cloud My IoT Exploration – Part 4 – Presenting the Data My IoT Exploration – Part 5 – Costs and Architecture Refection
This is my fourth post about exploring Internet of Things, previous posts can be found here: My IoT Exploration – Part 1 – The Failure My IoT Exploration – Part 2 – Raspberry Pi Sense HAT My IoT Exploration – Part 3 – Sending Data to Cloud For the last piece of this project I pretty much followed the approach described in Visualizing IoT Data with Web App. Since I wanted to learn how to create and deploy Azure Web Apps, this was a good fit.
