    Been good to be at Microsofts new munich-home. Interesting talks.
    From a security-guys perspective the windows-iot-talk was like "wut? - could it really be that didn't learn a thing from ~fifteen window-versions before??" - But then again, Pizza, lectures, beer plus some funny entertainment - the evening was good :-)

    First of all I'd like to say "Thank you" to our host Microsoft for free Pizza & Beer and for a broad range of presentations about Azure IoT, and to Andre for organizing this event.
    My personal highlight was the talk "From Sensor Data to Business Intelligence" about how to connect a gateway with Azure; it served well to explain the various Azure services and how they fit together in an IoT project.
