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
Rita Zhang, Software Engineer, Microsoft

Equipment required:

You bring:
- Laptop running a recent version of Linux, OS X, or Windows 10.
- Install the software listed in the Getting Started guide (we’ll send this to you once you register).

We bring:
- Hardware kits for you to keep!
- Labs to guide you through the process of building your IoT device.

These are exciting times in the Software Defined Storage space. Open source projects abound and are working collaboratively to community-driven innovation to the world of Storage infrastructure and also provide seamless integration to the cloud. Spend a day with us to understand Storage as a Service and the open source projects that contribute in this space, from CoprHD, Flocker and RexRay to Ceph, GlusterFS and OpenStack Swift. 

Some of the topics we'll be covering include software defined storage controllers and API platforms, persistent storage with Docker, storage management with OpenStack, open source storage platforms, and the new heterogeneous open source software stack for storage. 

Come and learn how to build an open source storage platform!
