Building on my previous v2 Endpoint Primer, here we discuss using the Implicit Grant.
For some time now, Microsoft has had two distinct systems for authenticating users; Microsoft Account (or MSA) and Azure Active Directory (or Azure AD); MSA for consumer services and Azure AD for enterprise services. The v2 Endpoint allow applications to authenticate both Microsoft Accounts and Azure AD accounts using a single OAUTH 2 endpoint. This allows developers to build applications that are entirely account-agnostic. This article covers the basics of using the v2 Endpoint and OAUTH2 to authenticate users.
I recently wrote about getting the a Raspberry Pi connected with Azure storage. This works well for when you have a full network stack to work with but what those scenarios where you don’t have this luxury? Here we’ll walk through one potential solution using a couple of cheap nRF24L01+ radio modules, a Netduino 2 and a Raspberry Pi.
I’ve been working on a little project at home recently and I needed to get data from some remote sensors in to the cloud. I also happened to have a couple of Raspberry Pi units begging me to do something fun. So with an Azure account and Raspberry in hand it was time to write the next killer app, Hello World with Azure in the middle.
