Chris Pietschmann’s Sessions

At this edition of the Microsoft Azure + AI Conference in April 2020, Chris Pietschmann will be giving two sessions around Microsoft Azure and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. These sessions will take Developers deep into topics around Azure IoT technologies that are relevant for ALL IoT solutions.

Session: Designing a Secure IoT Solution Architecture

Cybersecurity is important in any software solution. It’s even more important in the Internet of Things! This session takes you through various aspects of designing a secure IoT solution. We’ll discuss aspects of IoT security architecture such as Trust Zones and Boundaries, Azure IoT Edge, and securing IoT devices connected to Azure IoT services. We will even discuss what Azure Sphere has to offer for building more highly secured IoT solutions. You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of what a secure IoT solution architecture looks like and how to build one yourself.

Session: Implementing Real-Time IoT Stream Processing in Azure

So, you have IoT Devices connected to IoT Hub sending telemetry data into the Microsoft Azure cloud. Now what? This session will take you through setting up real-time stream processing of IoT data. We’ll look at integrating services like Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Functions, and Cosmos DB to build a highly scalable stream processing backend for any IoT solution. You’ll leave this session better prepared to handle real-time IoT stream processing in Azure; plus, you’ll do it with less code by utilizing serverless Azure Functions.
