James Sturtevant, Sr. Technical Evangelist, Microsoft

We will examine how IoT and Serverless come together so you can build scalable systems in a fast modular way. How small, single purpose functions can fit into an IoT architecture enabling you to be flexible as you design the system. We will briefly look at features Azure has to offer for IoT and then look at how to extend the system using Azure Functions to provide functionality like alerts, device management, and Cloud to Device communication. By the end of the session, you will have seen real use cases from projects that have been built at Microsoft and know how to add leverage serverless in IoT scenarios.
