Microsoft Azure* IoT Gateway SDK

Using this gateway SDK, developers write applications that enable gateway-connected devices to communicate with Microsoft Azure* IoT Hub. Such applications use a collection of modules to aggregate and transform data, process commands, or perform many related tasks. Modules communicate with one another via a message broker. Developers can choose from available modules or write their own to create gateways tailored to any scenario.
