In this talk, I'll use several Azure services to create a demo that shows how the automatic routing available in IoT Hub works. You'll see how to incorporate these services into one sample: IoT Hub, Storage, Service Bus, Azure Stream Analytics, PowerBI, Logic Apps, and Office 365.

I'll give some examples of IoT, and then delve into IoT Hub. I'll show how to use the feature in IoT Hub that lets you configure routing rules and have the hub automagically send your messages every which way. We'll see how to route messages to a storage account. We'll see how to route messages to a Service Bus queue that will in turn use a Logic App to send you e-mails with the message content. You'll see the rest of the messages go to the default endpoint, to be picked up by Azure Stream Analytics and viewed in Power BI. We'll run a C# application that sends messages to the Hub and triggers the different kinds of routing, and see the messages flow through to the different destinations.
