Educated in computer engineering and mathematics. Industry experience in education, aerospace manufacturing, and insurance. Joined Microsoft February 2012 and consider it my role to inform and inspire developers. When I'm not working, I'm hanging out with my wife and son, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, or working on my house and yard. Find me at @codefoster and codefoster.com.
I get really excited when I think about a fully connected world where even all of the little things are connected to the cloud and each other, where data can flow freely around the globe, and where compute is a commodity that may just as well happen in my sock as in a datacenter.
Microsoft offers some highly capable IoT services in the cloud, but we're also providing a very sensible means to move workloads to the edge. Doing so often makes a lot of sense and saves you time, money, or both.
In this session, we'll see where IoT Edge fits with cloud services, we'll learn how to set it up on a PC or an IoT device, and we'll build some edge modules that do real work.
