Savas’s Story:

I recently purchased couple of MCP9808 High Accuracy I2C Temperature Sensors from Adafruit and decided to upload sensor data to Azure first over Raspberry Pi and then visualize the data on PowerBI. Soldering and wiring guidelines could be found on this link, therefore, I will not repeat here. Pretty simple and straightforward. Next, we need to download the Python library to our Raspberry Pi from this link. Be careful, I2C should be enabled on your Raspberry Pi. Otherwise your sensor won’t work. You can find a sample Python file in this link to print sensor data to screen. Perhaps you would like to test your setup first by printing to screen. Now let’s finalize the Azure settings before we update the code.
