Ben Watt - Raspberry PI to PBI

Every last Thursday of the month

Location visible to members


Key note speaker for Session 1:
Ben Watt

Ben is the Managing Director of Datalineo, a Dublin-based consulting business. Ben is a long-time Power BI user and has a long background in SQL Server, data warehousing and data visualisation.

From Raspberry Pi to Power BI and lots in between
In this session Ben will walk you through a home-made IoT project with the data ultimately landing in Power BI for visualisation.

A Raspberry Pi is the IoT device, with sensors and camera attached to give an end-to-end streaming solution.
You will see Python used to run the program and process the images. Microsoft Azure plays its part where Microsoft Cognitive Services enriches the images with facial attributes and recognition, Azure SQL stores the metadata, Azure Blob storage holds the images, Power BI visualises the activity and Microsoft Flow sends mobile notifications.

You'll see enough to walk out and get your own project started straight away!
