Title: Microsoft Azure Event Hub and Demo by Paolo Patierno

Time:  Saturday, Apr 25, 2015 10:00 AM PDT

Paolo Patierno is a full stack engineer and has been working on Microsoft technologies since 2006 covering all version of .NET Framework (Micro, Compact and Desktop).  He has been developing codes for embedded and mobile devices based on Windows CE, Windows Phone, Android and other RTOS.  Paolo is an active community contributor and created multiple open-source project.  M2Mqtt, a .NET library for MQTT, is one of Paolo’s projects use by many to develop IoT application that support the MQTT protocol.

The figures describing the number of IoT devices by 2020 are frightening. Billion devices will produce enormous amount of data to be processed in the Cloud.  Without the right resources, it’s a huge challenge to support large number of devices that generate millions of events per second.  The task become even more difficult when it’s necessary to process these events in realtime.  Azure Event Hub is a scalable resource from Microsoft that enables developers to solve this challenge!

In this session, Paolo talks about Azure Event Hub and explain the differences from the other products.

Thierry Joubert is the CTO and co-founder of THEORIS, has been working on embedded and realtime systems for more than 25 years and worked with Windows Embedded OS platform since the early days.  As part of his active contribution to the academic and developer communities, Thierry received the MVP recognition from Microsoft since 2007.

New opportunities offered by Microsoft Azure will highly rely on connected devices. Mobile services or Machine learning apply to what is nowadays called “Internet of Things” but belongs to a domain formerly called “embedded  systems”. We definitely need new names because we are facing new notions and the application development process is evolving. Still, if hardware prices are going down with general downsizing, the challenges we are facing at the device level have never been greater, to low cost and reliability we are now adding security. This creates a situation where system designers will have to learn from the embedded experience.

In this session, Thierry talks about device software design from the ground up to build a successful Internet of Things. 


Title: Azure Mobile Services for IoT Devices and Demo by David Jones

Time:  Saturday, Apr 25, 2015 1:30 PM PDT

Meeting ID:  WHC4G6    Entry code:  5~,/zCZ/P 


Formerly an academic in Computer Engineering at RMIT University in Australia where he developed courses and supported student projects involving the Microsoft software stack.  Co-author of "Professional Windows Embedded Compact 7, a Wrox book and working on a new book for Compact 2013. Author of many related Codeplex projects.  David currently provide software consulting services in the embedded and IoT field.

In this session, David Jones talks about Azure Mobile Services for IoT devices and show how to use http://ardjson.codeplex.com (JSON parser for Arduino devices) and http://cejson.codeplex.com (JSON parser for Compact 2013 devices) to interact with Azure Mobile Services.  Information and documentation in the form of Hands on labs will be available for download after the event at http://www.embedded101.com/globalAzureBootcamp
