The Internet of things will get considerable airing at Microsoft’s Build developer conference this week, with the company planning to detail both its vision and architecture for the large-scale connected-devices concept. Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform is key to the company’s plans.
A recent Microsoft Internet of things blog post laid out the company’s focus. “Microsoft Build Developer Conference in in San Francisco will bring our vision for IoT to the thousands of developers … so they can take advantage of the major advances across our platforms, from Azure IoT services, to Windows 10 and beyond.”
A session on Microsoft’s vision for IoT will be led by Sam George, Microsoft’s partner director for Azure IoT, and Steve Teixeira, Microsoft director for program management for IoT. Kevin Miller, principal program manager for Azure IoT, will hold a session providing an overview of Microsoft’s IoT architecture.
