This week I had the pleasure to speak at the Azure & AI Conference / DEVintersection. The conference was hosted at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas the week of November 18, 2019. I was invited to speak at the Azure & AI Conferences and was able to deliver 2 sessions. Both of the sessions I gave were on topics around building Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using Microsoft Azure IoT services.

Below are the session abstracts for my sessions, along with the slides for those sessions. Whether you attended the sessions or not, please use these slides as reference.



Session: Building Secure IoT Solutions using Azure Sphere

Cybersecurity is important in any software solution. It’s even more important in the Internet of Things. This session takes you through building and prototyping secure, Internet to Things solutions using Azure Sphere; the Linux-based, secured, connected, crossover microcontroller unit (MCU) from Microsoft. We’ll look at securing Azure Sphere devices, writing and deploying code, and communicating with Azure IoT Hub. You’ll leave this session better prepared to build more highly secured IoT solutions using Microsoft Azure.

Here are my slides from this presentation:

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.

Wrap Up

The Azure & AI Conference is a really great Microsoft Azure focused conference. If you haven’t attended in the past, I recommend attending if you get the chance to learn all about the latest technologies around Microsoft Azure, AI, IoT, and MORE!
