IoT 101: Getting Connected for Developers (Additional Fee Required)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are you a developer who wants to learn about the Internet of Things (IoT)? Do you want to retrieve data from Internet-connected sensors for applications in home automation, healthcare, automotive, government and more? Do you want to control sensors and devices remotely from cloud, mobile, or desktop applications? In this IoT workshop you will use an IoT prototyping kit (that is yours to keep) to learn how to program a microcontroller (the “Thing” in IoT) that uses a variety of physical sensors such as light and temperature sensors; control switches; servos; and motors.

You will learn how to connect this “Thing” to Microsoft Azure IoT services to both collect data and issue control commands to the devices. Once you master prototyping the hardware and connecting it to the Cloud, you will learn how to leverage Azure IoT services to gain insight into the data coming from your connected Thing, including analytics and machine learning. Following the workshop you may continue your experience with your prototyping kit with additional hands-on labs you can subscribe to online. All you need to bring is your own laptop for this workshop.

Lead by:

Ivan R. Judson, Senior Software Engineer, Microsoft
JD Marymee, CTO and Technical Evangelist / Data Science and Machine Learning / Principal Software Developer, Microsoft
