Today, Jeffrey Palermo is joined by return guest, Sudhanva Huruli! Last time Sudhanva was on the podcast he was a Program Manager at Microsoft and a maintainer on the Open Application Model. Since then, he has transitioned to a different Program Manager role, working on Azure Sphere.


Azure Sphere is a ‘comprehensive IoT security solution – including hardware (crossover microcontroller), OS and cloud components for IoT device security – to actively protect your devices, your business and your customers.’


In their conversation, Sudhanva speaks about Azure Sphere, shares some tips and advice for getting started, and walks listeners through what it looks like to take code from source to building it, packaging it, and deploying it.
