Analysts predict that there will be anywhere from 24 to 200 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Imagine every device as an object that is capable of exchanging voluntary information about itself and its environment as well as executing commands via APIs to act on their environments. What's more, the analytical insights gleaned from this data will have the potential to transform existing business while creating new ones. The Internet of Things is here, and the heterogeneity of devices, messaging considerations, security constraints, volume of data and compute requirements are significant. In this talk, seven-time MVP and Microsoft Azure MVP Rick G. Garibay will provide a deep dive into the various ways in which devices can be connected today and how a service-assisted communication model is really key to tackling the myriad of constraints that exist today. We'll explore the strengths and weaknesses of various communication models and application protocols and how the Azure Reykjavik Device Gateway Accelerator addresses your needs today while providing the extensibility and scale to meet your needs as your IoT strategy grows. You'll learn how to get up and running on your Azure subscription with the Master and Partition roles, how to register a device and flow telemetry, inquires, commands and notifications through the Reykjavik fabric leveraging Azure Storage, HD Insight along with a look at how you can extend the fabric with custom protocol gateway and telemetry adapters.
Learn how Microsoft Azure IoT Suite lets you capture and analyze untapped device data to improve results across your business.

This session is about migrating an existing Azure Cloud Services based application to Azure Service Fabric. We will begin with a quick discussion on different motivations for such a migration. The rest of the talk will be focused on walking through the migrated application code and discussing the available design choices.
In this interview Brian breaks down the Prism library for building XAML applications. Microsoft recently open sourced Prism and put the community in charge of its direction. Brian happens to be one of the main contributors. It was a fun interview for me given how long I've known Brian personally.
