Internet of Things: 1 Day Virtual Workshop

Dynamics Edge

This instructor-led workshop details how to implement an end-to-end solution analyzing high velocity data in Azure. Learn to create a lambda architecture, filtering data for use in hot and cold paths.

This instructor-led virtual workshop details how to implement an end-to-end solution simulating high velocity data emitted from smart meters and analyzed in Azure. Create a lambda architecture, filtering a subset of the telemetry data for real-time visualization on the hot path, and storing the data in long-term storage for the cold path.

What You’ll Learn

  • Implement a simulator sending telemetry from smart meters
  • Capture and process both hot and cold data using Stream Analytics and HDInsight with Spark
  • Visualize hot data with Power BI


  • Workshop content presumes 300-level of architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design
  • We strongly recommend students take a Microsoft Azure Essentials course before enrolling in this workshop
