Why you should care about IoT and how to get started

According to some estimates, there will be 50 Billion connected devices by 2020. The release of Windows 10 core IoT has enabled the creation of the next generation of intelligent devices. In this talk you’ll learn about how the Windows 10 family will help build the next generation devices based on hardware like the Raspberry Pi 2, as well as how to extend these devices with new capabilities. We will walk through setting up the development environment including the desktop, the raspberry pi, the arduino, and a phone. Yes you read correctly, phones are a big part of the IoT world. We will demonstrate how to extend the platform to include support for popular Internet of Things (IoT) hardware interfaces. This is the beginning step for you to build rich devices from fun DIY home projects through enterprise level control systems.

During that time he has done everything from running network cable, setting up various companies infrastructure from the absolute bare metal, and building line of business software for many of those companies.
