Ok, this might be a round about way to do something, but I really wanted to experiment with MQTT and Azure Event Hubs. I wrote a bridge that would bridge data between several MQTT brokers and then queue that data up on an Azure Event Hub. These MQTT brokers are fed by data from several ESP8266 boards reporting different environmental conditions (temperature, etc).
After I got the MQTT to Azure Event Hub bridge done, I then found Adafruit’s io.adafruit.com dashboarding service (http://io.adafruit.com). It is pretty cool. So, what I then wanted to do is write a bridge between my Azure Event Hub to Adafruit to show data on a dashboard.
