Recently DX team members from Microsoft Canada took part in the DevOps Hackathon.  Our hack was to literally build a better mousetrap by connecting a Raspberry Pi to record the number of times a trap is set off and where the trap has been set off.  The data is fed through IoT Hub, stored in Azure SQL and then fed to Azure Machine Learning to provide predictions as to when the traps would need to be emptied.
