You're not connected to the Internet.


Microsoft and SparkFun have teamed up to bring you some IoT (Internet
of Things) fun.

The Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kit for the SparkFun Thing Development
Board has been designed to help you seamlessly connect your device to
the cloud with Microsoft Azure IoT. This kit includes an 'Azure
certified for IoT' SparkFun Thing Dev Board, and a breadboard and
wires to help you set up your circuits. There are also a variety of
sensors such as a photoresistor to sense light as well as a
humidity/temperature sensor to read the ambient temperature and
humidity in a room (or outdoors with some weatherproofing). Once your
board is connected to Microsoft Azure you can start visualizing and
analyzing your data.

Microsoft Azure is a leading provider of cloud computing and Microsoft
Azure IoT Hub enables secure, reliable bi-directional communications
between IoT endpoints such as sensors and the cloud. Azure IoT Hub
supports a broad set of operating systems (Linux, Windows, RTOS etc.),
protocols and common languages, so you can configure your connections
to the devices.

The SparkFun Thing Dev Board is based on the popular ESP8266 WiFi
module. With it you have a simple microcontroller with built in WiFi
to interface with your sensors, buttons, and LEDs that can be
controlled from or post data to the web. Everything you need to get
started from voltage regulation to a PCB antenna are built into the
board. Just plug a USB cable into the board and you can actually start
programming in the Arduino IDE or other environments.

Note: Microsoft Azure account sign up requires a credit card.
Microsoft does state that this information is collected only to verify
your identity and that you will not be charged unless you explicitly
upgrade to a paid offer.
