Modern connected hardware (or IoT) applications are about more than setting up a microcontroller to read sensors or control actuators. Increasingly, these systems need to connect with other devices, backhaul their data to the cloud, or enable remote updates or commands across large distances. These types of solutions require simple, open, and extensible developer tools, and integrations with popular cloud Platforms.
In this workshop, Paul DeCarlo and Brandon Satrom will share an approach for building IoT applications: using Particle for hardware and backhaul, and Azure IoT Hub and IoT Central to power cloud intelligence. Over the course of this half-day, hands-on session, you’ll learn everything you need to know to build your next connected solution.
Paul DeCarlo is a Microsoft Cloud Advocate and Professor for the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. His technology interests are Internet of Things, cloud applications and cross-platform mobile development.
Brandon Satrom is the Developer Evangelist for Particle. An unabashed lover of the web, mobile and an avid tinkerer, Brandon loves to talk about sensors and circuits, microcontrollers, open source, robots and more.
