I develop software at Nebbia Technology. At Nebbia, we have a passion for helping organizations realize their potential by leveraging DevOps practices and Microsoft Azure. I also organize the Orlando IoT Meetup. I’m humbled to say the meetup has grown to over 1,000 members. The Orlando IoT mission is to foster IoT development in Orlando. We have a monthly meetup, an active and growing Slack group, as well as a few special events here and there. I also write, usually on my own blog and at IoTForAll.com. I also do the occasional podcast (as both guest and host), and I enjoy presenting as well. Sometimes as a monster.
Microsoft Azure IoT Edge Explained
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM
You may have heard about Microsoft Azure IoT Edge, the technology that touts it brings the intelligence of the cloud to edge devices. In truth, it encompasses a whole lot more. Azure IoT Edge is a re-branding of Microsoft's IoT Gateway with that added intelligence-at-the-edge functionality. At it's heart, IoT Edge thrives as a central gateway your low-power and legacy devices can use to connect to the cloud securely. It is flexible enough to run in both Linux and Windows platforms. You can mix-and-match modules that translate and transform data from your edge devices, log errors, run logic at the edge, connect to the cloud, and, well, do nearly anything you can imagine. And these modules? You can write them in C#, Node.js, Java, C++, or mix and match in any of those languages. In short, Azure IoT Edge provides a robust and flexible platform to connect your edge devices to the cloud and process their data as it moves between device and cloud. Come explore how you can leverage this technology in your IoT solutions.
IoT & DevOps
01:00 PM - 01:50 PM
IoT offers some unique challenges when it comes to creating a deployment pipeline. Low-power devices connected with spotty internet connections, often with few humans around to help out when things go wrong, create an environment of uncertainty. Let's walk through how automated deployments, including automated testing, a build and release pipeline, and rollback functionality can be created for not only the cloud side of your IoT solution, but all the way to the edge.
