Internet of Things has become a hot topic in today's tech news. Gartner predicts: "The Internet of Things (IoT), which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009". IOT will also include embedded sensors, home automation products and wearables, among other "things". Developing software for these devices, big data and the Cloud will provide great opportunities for developers in the years to come. Come to this presentation to see what all the excitement is about, where the opportunities are and how to get started with Internet of Things using cool technologies like the RaspberryPI, Node.js and the Cloud.
Get FREE training and expert help to build and publish your apps for Windows devices.
Are you finally ready to start developing for mobile devices? Perhaps you're interested in learning what's new in Windows Phone 8.1 and how to build universal apps that can be published in both the Windows and Windows Phone Stores? The Portland Windows Phone Day will help you get your app closer to completion and get that much closer to putting the app in the store. In fact we expect many developers will have their application already uploaded to the store by the end of the day.
While previous events have focused around "learning" to build for Windows and Windows Phone, the focus of this event is geared towards doing the work and helping you "publish" your apps.
