Abstract

Last month we learned about setting up Windows 10 IoT on a Rasberry Pi. This month, let’s learn about IoT in a development scenario (some Python) and processing the data through Azure. There’s a lot of parts to the bigger picture and some really slick ways to get at and make use of your data. Come see as Scott walks us through his experiences with learning this exciting new stack.

Abstract

We’re going to try something a little different this month…A bit of maker stuff/hacking on some devices. The Internet of Things has been buzzing for a while. Let’s get a little hands on with devices and take away some of the questions about IoT and Windows 10 IoT Core.

We want you to bring your Rasberry Pi’s and let’s get them working with Windows 10 IoT Core. Don’t have a device, no problem. Greg will be going through things for everyone and you can follow along. We’ll see how far we can get.

To get started ahead of time. We’ll be going through some of the material below and more.
