With the release of Windows 10, there is a lot of focus on its use within the enterprise on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones, but did you know that Windows 10 also introduced support for low-cost embedded platforms such as the Raspberry Pi 2? Not only did Microsoft build Windows IoT to target these sub-$50 embedded platforms, they also introduced high level APIs to integrate with even smaller analogue circuits connected locally via USB, or remotely via Bluetooth, LAN or even WiFi. In this session you'll learn about Windows IoT and how it can help you rapidly prototype and deploy embedded solutions and easily integrate analogue sensors and actuators which might normally require complex driver development.
One in 4 virtual machines in Azure run on Linux, and that means several customers are already running enterprise-grade Linux solutions on Azure. In this session, you'll see a demonstration of the key features you use and need, like Azure Resource Manager and Linux virtual machine extensions, and best practices for running Linux and open-source software solutions based on several customer deployments.
