20:00 - 21:00: The Internet of Your Things with Windows 10 IoT (Jan Tielens)
The Internet of Things can make a difference to a business right now, but it can also pose challenges since it can seem overwhelming, complicated and expensive. In this session we’ll demystify IoT and go over the building blocks of a typical IoT solution. We’ll quickly go over the work that Microsoft has been doing on the services side with the IoT Suite in Azure; and focus more on the devices side with Windows 10 IoT Core on for example the Raspberry Pi.
