Practical IoT: The coming age of C# at the Edge with Meadow

Microsoft Building 20

Did you know that in just a few years there will be 10x as many non-mobile connected things on the planet as humans? And today, the global IoT market, including hardware and services is nearly $1T. IoT is the quiet revolution in technology today, and it’s bigger than anything that’s come before it; yet so many people are locked out of it because of the advanced embedded skillset needed to build hardware solutions today. And because there’s no hero-device/experience like the iPhone, it’s a step in the technology revolution like none that have come before. Speaker Join Bryan Costanich (CEO of Wilderness Labs and former VP at Xamarin) as he takes a look at hardware revolution from both a business leader perspective, and then dives into how to build practical IoT solutions with Meadow; the latest innovation from former Xamarin folk that enables you to run full .NET applications on real embedded hardware: microcontrollers.
