  • Demystifies the edge computing paradigm, which can be vague and intimidating, in a very approachable and easy-to-understand way and demonstrates how to leverage existing skills to create and deploy edge solutions
  • Explains core edge computing concepts and highlights decision points that should be considered when determining whether an edge compute solution is the right one for your scenario
  • Enables developers and architects to become a subject matter expert on a very young and emerging technology
  • Is a good resource for tech “trailblazers” researching emerging technologies to see whether (and how) they fit into their company's ability to stay relevant and competitive

About this book

Use a step-by-step process to create and deploy your first Azure IoT Edge solution.

Modern day developers and architects in today’s cloud-focused world must understand when it makes sense to leverage the cloud. Computing on the edge is a new paradigm for most people. The Azure IoT Edge platform uses many existing technologies that may be familiar to developers, but understanding how to leverage those technologies in an edge computing scenario can be challenging.

Beginning Azure IoT Edge Computing demystifies computing on the edge and explains, through concrete examples and exercises, how and when to leverage the power of intelligent edge computing. It introduces the possibilities of intelligent edge computing using the Azure IoT Edge platform, and guides you through hands-on exercises to make edge computing approachable, understandable, and highly useful.

Through user-friendlydiscussion you will not only understand how to build edge solutions, but also when to build them. By explaining some common solution patterns, the decision on when to use the cloud and when to avoid the cloud will become much clearer.


What You'll Learn

  • Create and deploy Azure IoT Edge solutions
  • Recognize when to leverage the intelligent edge pattern and when to avoid it
  • Leverage the available developer tooling to develop and debug IoT Edge solutions
  • Know which off-the-shelf edge computing modules are available
  • Become familiar with some of the lesser-known device protocols used in conjunction with edge computing
  • Understand how to securely deploy and bootstrap an IoT Edge device
  • Explore related topics such as containers and secure device provisioning

Who This Book Is For
Developers or architects who want to understand edge computing and when and where to use it. Readers should be familiar with C# or Python and have a high-level understanding of the Azure IoT platform.
