• "Born in the cloud: Lessons learned while building a successful IoT startup in Azure” by Joey Lorich Technical Architect for Microsoft


Building a startup around embedded IoT devices isn't easy, especially in 2012. In this session you'll learn how UniKey Technologies leveraged Azure to grow an idea pitched on Season 3 of Shark Tank into a company offering a robust platform powering embedded IoT access control devices for multiple verticals in hundreds of countries.

Hear lessons learned while developing a rapidly evolving platform in Azure on topics such as building the right team, learning how and when to scale, common pitfalls in IoT architecture, migrating to microservices with Service Fabric, and accelerating timelines with DevOps.
