Talk 1 - Living on the IoT Edge

Building an IoT device is easy. Doing it at cloud scale is hard. How will do you ensure your backend doesn't get swamped with requests? How do you manage software updates at scale? Will it all still be secure? Luckily Azure IoT Edge can help us manage all these challenges.

In this talk I’ll guide you through the complete IoT device lifecycle, from manufacture to decomission, using Azure IoT Edge for the heavy lifting. We’ll be exploring topics ranging from manufacturing to security, monitoring and decommissioning of devices using an actual IoT device to show all the concepts.

After this talk you'll have an overview of all the steps involved in productizing an IoT device. Furthermore you'll have an overview of the options available to you when using the Azure IoT Edge suite to accomplish these steps.

About Rob van Geloven:
I am a .NET expert at, where I work as a consultant on complex tailored .NET solutions. With fifteen years of experience in software development I've been many things, from hardcore Ops to CTO and everything in between. Nowadays I mostly work as a passionate .NET focused software architect. My main goal is to help people and business get better and be better: from the way people work, how people test and code to how software gets delivered. Beside my passion for software development I like working on DIY electronics and IoT projects. When I am not coding I am having fun with my family, or playing some Magic the Gathering with my friends.

Talk 2 - Building IoT Edge solutions

In this talk I will focus on how IoT Edge works under the hood and how you can build your own edge modules using C# and Visual Studio code. I will do this walking you through the code and configuration of a demo IoT solution that integrates IoT Edge, IoT Hub, Azure Functions and the Azure SignalR service.
