The Internet of Things connects real world machines to the internet for both command and control purposes and telemetry gathering. IoT is expected to be a major growth technology for the next few years. Microsoft has positioned itself to supply both an operating system that runs on commodity IoT processing units, and the messaging services to connect IoT devices to the cloud.

Windows IoT Core is the version of Windows for maker boards and small devices. Additionally, Microsoft has released Azure IoT Hub service, which offers reliable and secure device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device messaging, all available through a streamlined programming model.

In this session, Jason Ditzel will demonstrate how a .NET developer can use their existing skills to work with the Internet of Things by using Windows IoT Core on a Raspberry Pi 2 and connect it the cloud via Azure IoT Hub.

About Azure SIG
The Cleveland Azure Special Interest Group (Azure SIG) (formerly the Cleveland .NET SIG) was founded in a partnership between Bennett Adelson and Microsoft 20 years ago. The SIG has become the forum for Azure collaboration and instruction from some of the brightest minds in the region. The organization was founded to provide enterprise customers and community with educational support on the Azure cloud platform. The group meetings consist of architecture and implementation focused, content-rich presentations and interactive discussions with demos. The audience ranges from Azure experts to those decision makers, infrastructure engineers, and developers that are getting their first glimpse of the cloud.
