#JulyOT is back for 2021! Throughout the month of July, the IoT Cloud Advocacy team will be sharing content and events put together by IoT enthusiasts from around the world. This includes content from community members, Microsoft employees, and could even involve you! For every working day in July, we’ll focus on a featured content piece from our curated collection at the IoT Tech Community. We hope to inspire curious minds to pursue their own Internet of Things journey.
Paul DeCarlo is a Principal Cloud Developer Advocate specializing in IoT, Cloud, and Artificial intelligence at the Edge solutions, and also serves as a professor at the University of Houston.
Jim does things with IoT and Azure in the Developer Relations team at Microsoft, mainly creating content for students and faculty to help them be successful with Microsoft technologies. He’s British, so sounds way smarter than he actually is, and is happy he moved to Redmond in time to be locked down at home and not see the office he came to work in, or the places he wanted to visit. 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.
As a Sr. Cloud Advocate for Microsoft, Anthony Bartolo takes great pride in architecting and conducting “science experiments” that incorporate Microsoft technology and services to address a customer problem or opportunity. Anthony accomplishes this by conducting hackathons with industry leading organizations to test theories and create Proof of Concepts (PoC) utilizing Microsoft cloud services. Some of the more interesting Proof of Concepts completed have included teaching drones to identify objects to aid in search and rescue efforts and automating research via Azure Functions to extract information from social media to aid law enforcement in finding children reported missing. Results and best practices of these and other projects are then shared openly with the community at large to help upskill everyone.
