Connect Everything to the Cloud with IoT
Date: June 03, 2021
Time: 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM (Central European)
What is this session about? Everything can be connected to the cloud these days, thanks to the power of the Internet of Things! This session covers what the Internet of Things actually is, looking at the thing side as well as the internet side. It covers how you too can get started building your own connected things with some relatively low priced developer kits, with plenty of fun demos. It will also cover why you shouldn't connect everything to the internet, and what bad things can happen if you do.
Who is it aimed at? Anyone who wants to learn about the Internet of Things, including how to get started.
Why should I attend? To learn about how to build your first IoT device, or to learn what you need to think about to make your 100th device successful. You'll also see some fun demos!

In the past he’s lived in 4 continents working as a developer in the mobile, desktop, and scientific space. He also hates cats, but has an 8 year old daughter who loves cats, so he has 2 cats.
