Connect MXChip DevKit to Azure IoT Edge

A customer of mine who is working on an IoT POC to show their management wanted to connect the MXChip Devkit to IoT Hub via IoT Edge. This turned out to be trickier than it should be, as the connection between the MXChip and the IoT Edge box is, like all IoT Hub/Edge connections, TLS-encrypted. So you have to get the MXChip to trust the “tls server” certificate that IoT Edge returns when a client tries to connect. Thanks to some great ground-laying work by Arthur Ma, I wrote a hands-on lab walking you through this scenario. The lab can be found on my team’s github site here

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any problems.
