I do a bit of Azure IoT dev and wanted to see how easy it would be to get a N3 uploading data to a Microsoft Azure Event Hub.
My Arduino & Netduino 2 Plus devices can't do https so I had built a lightweight field gateway (a self installing windows service) to upload data from sensors around my home.
An Azure Event hub can cope with millions of events per second so I figured my single device with a couple of DS18B20 temperature sensors, uploading every 15 sec shouldn't be a problem.
The N3 uses a TI CC3100 wifi module which has on board SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.2 so I was hoping this would be more reliable than the native NetMF SSL stack.(I had problems with a memory leak)
So far things are looking positive, the N3 has been running for a couple of days and recovered gracefully from brief connectivity dropouts.
Have a look at the blog posting which has the code etc.
