👉 Air Quality, Azure Functions and Spider Eggs

Good quality air is important. After all, everyone breathes. But dig a little deeper into the subject and most of what you find is what we don't know. Is air pollution produced by local traffic? Does it waft in on the breeze? Are there times when I really shouldn't go out for a run?

In this talk I'll describe how you can build your own connected air quality sensor and get data from it. I'll touch on embedded devices the MQTT protocol, LoRa networking, Azure IoT Hub and Azure Functions, along with our Connected Humber effort to spread sensors over Humberside. And I'll even mention spider eggs and show off my "Air Quality Top Hat".

👨‍🏫 About the speaker:
Rob Miles has spent over 30 years teaching programming to a succession of students at the University of Hull in the UK. He’s a Microsoft MVP with a passion for programming, C# and creating new things. He's written a few books over the years, and coloured in a lot more.

If he had any spare time he’d spend it writing even more code. He loves making programs and then running them to see what happens. He reckons that programming is the most creative thing you can learn how to do.

Having worked with many languages and platforms over the years he now likes nothing more than writing C# using Visual Studio, preferably for a small device of some kind. If there are motors and lights involved, so much the better.

He claims to know a lot of really good jokes, but nobody has ever heard him tell one.
