Free in-person workshop “Experience the basics of Azure IoT, Dashboarding … and beyond” at BitBash

Together with my colleague Sander van de Velde, we are hosting the in-person “Experience the basics of Azure IoT, Dashboarding … and beyond” workshop at the next BitBash event on January 26, Veenendaal, The Netherlands.


Bitbash is an in-person event that’s free to attend. It’s held on Friday, January 26, and Saturday, January 27 at Info Support HQ in Veenendaal, The Netherlands.

Our workshop is on Friday 26th of January from 09:00 to 12:00 in room 3. Registration starts at 8.30.

A lunch is provided. Check the agenda for a second workshop in the afternoon.

The Saturday is full of other presentations, divided into three tracks. Again, free tickets are available.

The workshop

The Internet of Things (IoT) is hot and happening. Many companies benefit from their machine data by optimizing their processes with remote monitoring and predictive maintenance.

,But I don’t know anything about IoT. How should I start? How do I get value from incoming raw telemetry?’

The best way to learn it is to experience it!

Within this half-day workshop, you’ll follow the scenario in which a remote coffee machine is connected to Azure for monitoring and management of issues. You can monitor device telemetry such as water temperature and water level, observe the state of your machine, set the optimal temperature, and send commands. Next to that, you learn how to query the data using KQL and use that for building simple but effective dashboards.

With this introduction, you will get an idea of the basic IoT principles through hands-on experience with a simulated device, Azure IoT Hub, Azure Data Explorer, and Visual Studio Code. So, bring your laptop and prepare yourself for future IoT-related cases and telemetry exploration within your organization.

You will turn your laptop into a coffeemaker!

During the workshop, there is plenty of time available for you to ask questions about Azure IoT, Azure Data Explorer, and Azure in general. We are happy to share our experience.

Check out the prerequisites (like the laptop configuration and Azure subscription) here.

How to register

If you want to learn how to harness the power of Azure IoT and Azure Data Explorer and control your device from the cloud zero-touch, this is the workshop for you.

Learn how to query large amounts of real-time time series data within seconds and turn these insights into dashboards.

You could know Sander from his excellent blog posts mostly about Azure IoT. Sander and I share the same last name but we are not related. We are more like digital twins.

Please note that you need separate tickets for Friday and Saturday.

Also, be cautious when registering for multiple workshops on Friday to avoid any overlapping registrations.

Tickets for Bitbash are 100% free and we’d like to keep it that way. Please register only if you are certain you can attend in-person, to avoid wasting food or disappointing others. We understand that unexpected circumstances may arise. If that happens, please cancel your ticket(s) as soon as possible to make them available for others.
