I presume for Azure Sphere i need to use Microsoft Azure. I have used Azure before but am not using it right now.
I have decide to do some reading about IoT with microsoft.
coincidentally, few days ago i borrowed a Windows 10 IoT book from library hence i spent the day flipping through it. It gives me the impression that i need to use IoT Hub. From my last experience, the most difficult thing with Azure, other than the documentation that is like a maze, is its unpredictable pricing. I haven't been able to calculate and predict its pricing the last i used it. I am also reading about OTA https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure-sphere/deployment/deployment-overview and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure-sphere/deployment/deployment-concepts , and although the latter is detailed, i am still unsure if IoT hub is the only way i need to go about using Azure Sphere. I will leave the discovery to much later.
