How to Leverage Azure IoT Services for Fun and Profit... Today

Abstract

Many vendors are entering the race to provide turnkey IoT solutions, one of which is Microsoft with their recently announced Azure IoT Suite. We will talk about what IoT is (hint:  more than IP-connected lightbulbs and fitness trackers), and then take a quick look at Microsoft’s history in IoT to help set perspective on their IoT offerings. Next, we'll dive into the Azure IoT Services that exist today and see how we can leverage them to create effective and scalable IoT solutions.  Discussion (and demo) will also cover items such as connectivity and ingestion from multiple platforms, cloud service processing, storage, analytics, and presentation.  Additionally, key items such as security, scalability and financial impacts will be discussed as well. 

Speaker – Nino Benvenuti

Nino Benvenuti has been getting paid for making 0s and 1s do his bidding since 1996. He succumbed to the spell of mobile and embedded devices right before the turn of the century and has been challenging himself with them ever since. He got some cloud in his mobile several years ago and became hooked once he realized it was magically delicious, and has been combining the power of the cloud with mobile and embedded to help customers be successful ever since.  He has spent his entire professional career in consulting, where he has designed and built solutions across many problem domains for a diverse set of customers. Nino lives in Cincinnati, but is often found at various locations across North America helping customers realize results.

March 2015 – F12: Tools and Tips for Tuning and Debugging The Web

Meeting Topic
 

F12: Tools and Tips for Tuning and Debugging The Web

Abstract

You already know how to debug your C#/VB.NET but what about everything in the browser? The developer tools in IE (and every other modern browser) are packed full of features to help. Having trouble working with minified code? There’s a simple trick to deminify it all. Pages slow or rendering oddly? Profiling and timeline features can help solve this. Bonus topics will include tools like Glimpse and Fiddler that show what the heck the server is doing to your UI. Sites will still do strange things, but now there are ways to fix them.
