M2Mqtt on .Net Gadgeteer & HiveMQ on Azure

Dieter De Preester discussed on his blog (Talking about IoT) about IoT with a two parts tutorial that involves :

  • M2Mqtt library as MQTT client running on a .Net Gadgeteer board that has an RGB led connected to it;
  • HiveMQ as MQTT broker running on Microsoft Azure inside a Linux Ubuntu virtual machine;
  • Android application that use MQTT Paho client to send messages to the board;

Using the application, he shows how we can change led color remotely from any part in the world.
