If you saw this post you know that the last IoT Workshop my team and I hosted was a blast. We are getting ready to add some new labs to ThingLabs.io in preparation for another workshop event on Monday, September 14th. If you missed the last one, you should definitely come to this one – and it’s part of a great new event (disclaimer – I have been helping with the IoT content planning).
The new event is TECHintersection and it is being put together by the founders of DEVintersection, DotNetRocks, and one of the masterminds behind large scale events including Microsoft TechEd, //build and AWS re:Invent. The event has a shared focus on three topic areas that are tightly intertwined – the Internet of Things, Architecture and Security. Its looking like it is going to be a great few days spent in the city that gave birth to TED Talks – Monterey, CA.
For the IoT Workshop (we are calling this one IoT Firestarter) we are planning a full day, with lots of hands-on time. We will likely be using a new board, which will result in an entirely new set of labs. In this workshop we will go from building your first hardware project to ingesting telemetry into Azure and creating data visualizations with PowerBI (of course we will still do some command/control stuff – and maybe even bring a couple robots…who knows).
Throughout the conference there will be great sessions, including technical sessions from the Windows IoT and Azure IoT product teams, a few sessions from my team on how we have build IoT solutions in the real-world (including connected cars, constructions site and more), and a couple companies who have built IoT start-ups will be there to share their story, including Josh Supalla from Particle.io and a keynote by Adam Benzion, the co-founder of Hackster.io. You can get the full session list here.
I hope to see you there!
