Microsoft + Open Source “How To”: Embracing Linux Devices on Microsoft Azure via Service Bus and Websites


Posted by Jose Miguel Parrella

Microsoft Azure’s Node.js Developer Center provides support for deploying Microsoft Azure Websites, Virtual Machines, and Mobile Services, configuring git-based deployments, and using Service Bus and Storage.

In this video, I’ll use Azure's open source SDK for Node.js, the REST interface of Azure Service Bus, and Node.js and Web Sockets support on Azure Websites to illustrate how to capture data from sensors connected to a Pinguino board. All on a Raspberry Pi running Linux.

This demo was part of my presentation at LinuxFest Northwest 2014. Slides are available here and sample code on GitHub here.

Any other interoperability scenarios you'd like to see? Please let us know in the comments!
