We have limited places on this workshop delivered by M2M Cloud. Designing and implementing the architecture for an IoT solution can be a daunting challenge. M2M Cloud will explore the architecture of solutions for the IoT utilising the services of Microsoft Azure platform. They will look at how to account for increasing demand and scale which allows a solution to grow from proof of concept to production ready deployment. The session will cover key ingestion, storage and processing technologies.

Who should Attend?

These workshops are aimed at software engineers, software architects and technology decision makers working within the IoT space who are interested in developing IoT back-end solutions for Microsoft Azure. The sessions will include a broad introduction into Microsoft IoT resources and services and will allow attendees to get hands-on and deploy and monitor a small IoT Solution.

Regrettably the workshop is not suitable for current undergraduates or new graduates/students who do not hold the minimum level of software design experience.
