We're excited to announce Hackster and Microsoft's biggest event yet!
RSVP in the group and here. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-hackster-microsoft-roadshow-2017-los-angeles-tickets-35191072445
The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow is an exploratory, first look workshop into how IoT leverages cloud technologies.
This four-hour workshop is designed primarily for people working in the tech industry in companies with IoT projects and/or may find themselves needing to expand their knowledge beyond the local device and understand downstream architectures in the cloud. This workshop addresses how data from a device may be received and subsequently processed. This class is not about the device, it is about device data and cloud back ends.
This is a lecture-lab style course in which topics are presented by the instructor. Labs are completed by students during the workshop, or students may finish labs after the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop presumes no knowledge of Azure cloud products. It does presume some knowledge with making an IoT device using an Arduino or Raspberry PI and/or other such related “maker” experiences and skills.
Kent Stroker (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kentstroker/) is a Senior Consultant at Microsoft IoT OEM.
In this workshop, we hope to introduce students to Azure Cloud, the Azure IoT portfolio, and streaming analytics and dashboards. We'll provide hands-on experience building a basic “cold” and “hot” path IoT, cloud-based, back-end processing architecture.
Every participant attending this event will receive IoT completion certificates.
WHAT TO BRING
Since we want to make the most of our time at the workshop, please follow the instructions to prepare for the workshop before arriving. You can download everything from the github page (https://github.com/kentstroker/IoT-Live-2017) here. It is strongly advised for students to print a copy of the lab handout (https://github.com/kentstroker/IoT-Live-2017/blob/master/Hackster%20Live%202017%20Lab%20Manual%20v2.0.pdf) for easy reference during the workshop.
Bring a laptop running Windows 10 that has wireless network capability. YES, you can use a virtual machine (https://vimeo.com/221190231) running on your mac or linux computer! Don't forget your power supply!
Do the following on your laptop:
Enable Developer Mode Enable Windows feature “Windows Subsystem for Linux (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/commandline/wsl/install_guide?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396)” Make sure you can invoke a bash shell from a Command Prompt window Install Node.js v6.10.3 LTS from www.nodejs.org (http://www.nodejs.org/) Install Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition (https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/) (it's free!) Create a Microsoft Azure (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/) subscription. Azure accounts are free for the first 30 days and come with $250 credit.
It's a good idea to plan on being able to provide your own hotspot connectivity. Packing an extension cord is often a good idea. A mouse is often nice too.
Lab 1: Azure Cloud IoT Hub Lab
Lab 2: Store Messages to Table Lab
Lab 3: Data Visualization Web App Lab
This is a very cram packed 4 hours, come prepared to learn at a fast pace. Also, understand that this course will not make you an expert in Azure IoT, rather this is a first look at the depth and breadth of the Microsoft IoT technology stack and introduces to some of the major pieces of a typical IoT cloud architecture. You should come away from this workshop with a sense of “knowing what you do not know” and eager to learn more. There are many avenues for learning more and we will wrap the workshop with next steps and learning resources you may wish to explore. Look forward to seeing you at one of these workshops this summer!
