Azure Sphere is designed around around the 7 principles of highly secured devices and when learning more about these you will realize that the developer has a big role to play in securing IoT devices.
What is the developer experience like when working with Azure Sphere? What's new or different that you need to learn as an application developer? The good news is the experience is identical to writing any other application in Visual Studio.
Before we take a look at what the developer experience looks like for Azure Sphere, let’s review some fundamentals.
Think of Azure Sphere as being three things:
You can use Azure Sphere in two scenarios:
Azure Sphere is about IoT hardware so the first step is to pick your hardware. One choice is the Azure Sphere MT3620 Development Kit from Seeed.
Visual Studio 2019 is the IDE you will need to get started along with the Azure Sphere SDK onto your device.
One thing that will differ from what you might be familiar with is the fact that before you can start coding anything you will need to
Once you have done these, you can go ahead and start blinking the LEDs - as we all know blinky is the Hello World for IoT. Writing, deploying, debugging your application will be the same experience as any other application developed in Visual Studio.
Watch Mike Hall, Principal Software Engineering lead for Azure Sphere, step through both a blinky application and a guardian module application on the #IoTShow.
To get started yourself, it's this way.
