The Internet of Things (IoT) isn’t just the latest buzzword for vendors to throw around when they talk to your boss. It’s also a real opportunity for .NET devs. But IoT devices and platforms are a hot mess. Programming for the IoT space is a lot like programming was in 1986, except that everything is connected to everything else now.
In this session, you’ll learn how to get started with a real-world, end-to-end IoT solution that costs five bucks (and an Azure subscription, even a trial one). And how to think about IoT security and avoid becoming part of the Incredibly Dangerous Internet of Things (#IDIoT).
John Cavnar-Johnson is a software developer/architect working as a Principal Consultant for Improving. In the last 25 years, he’s been a corporate developer, IT sysadmin, software development manager, IT enterprise architect, consultant, and entrepreneur, but mostly he’s spent his time solving problems and hooking stuff together. Before becoming a professional software geek, John was lucky enough to meet Grace Hopper, take a graduate school course from Barbara Jordan, and marry Mary Cavnar-Johnson, MD.
When he’s not toying with tiny WiFi devices or designing enterprise software, you can find him reading, enjoying craft beer, and hanging out in his hot tub (often at the same time).
