The IoT Bootcamp is coming to Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo on June 9-10 at the Javits Center in New York. Instructor. Registration is now available at http://iotbootcamp.sys-con.com/
Instructor Janakiram MSV previously taught the famously successful Multi-Cloud Bootcamp at Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in November in Santa Clara. Now he is expanding the focus to
Janakiram is the founder and CTO of Get Cloud Ready Consulting, a niche Cloud Migration and Cloud Operations firm that recently got acquired by Aditi Technologies. He is a Microsoft Regional Director for Hyderabad, India, and one of the first few Microsoft Certified Azure Professionals in India.
Janakiram is also one of the first few professionals with Amazon Certified Solution Architect, Amazon Certified Developer and Amazon Certified SysOps Administrator credentials, and is also recognized by Google as the Google Developer Expert (GDE) for his contribution to the Cloud community.
Janakiram is a Guest Faculty at the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-H) where he teaches Cloud Computing, Containers, Big Data, DevOps to the students enrolled for the Masters course.
I recently interviewed him about the upcoming IoT Bootcamp, and this is what he had to say:
Please describe the outlines of the upcoming IoT Bootcamp.
The IoT Bootcamp is first of its kind that covers theÂ fundamentals of devices, cloud and analytics.
During the first part, attendees will get to see Arduino, Raspberry Pi and, Intel Edison in action.
The second part is all about connecting the devices to the cloud. I show how to use Azure, Amazon and Google Cloud to stream and store sensor data.
The third and the final part is about logic and analytics. We will use advanced querying and visualization to make sense of the data. The bonus session isÂ designing a smart home withÂ all the above. We will show how to connect the dots in designing a real world home automation platform.
How does this build on the Cloud Bootcamp that you've previously taught at Cloud Expo?
Cloud Bootcamp focused on the infrastructure aspects of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. It was meant for IT professionals and DevOps teams. IoT Bootcamp is all aboutÂ utilising the cloud to design solutions.
The IoT Bootcamp will start with IoT 101 and goes all the way to up to the advanced concepts of steaming and analytics. One common factor between both the bootcamps is the multi-cloud aspect. We show how toÂ performÂ common tasks on top cloud platforms.
Who should attend?
The Bootcamp is meant for both technology and business decision makers. Similar to the Cloud Bootcamp, it has the right balance between technology and the application of it. Developers and IT Pros can learn how to get started with the development and deployment while business professionals will be able to demystify the concepts involved with Internet of Things.
How is it different from other bootcamps and workshops?
The methodology we follow to deliver the Bootcamp is quite different from others. The emphasis is more on application of technology than using PowerPoint slides.
There will be no sessions without a demo! Each session is designed to cover the key aspect of IoT delivered through a real world demonstration. For many attendees, this would beÂ their first workshop with exposure to a wide range of devices, sensors, tools and technologies.
What specific technologies do you cover?
The IoT Bootcamp has a comprehensive coverage of devices, cloud and analytics. We coverÂ the following technologies:
Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Spark, Intel Galileo and Edison Â
Arduino, Cloud9, and Node-Red
Cloud based streaming tools like Azure Event Hubs
NoSQL storage such as Amazon DynamoDB
Querying & Analytics
Real time analytics through Google BigQuery andÂ other tools
What will attendees take away from the IoT Bootcamp?
Attendees will walk away with the big picture of IoT. They will be able to demystify the concepts of sensors, protocols, streaming, storage and analytics.
The goal of the Bootcamp is to provide 360 degree view of the IoT landscape. This is an ideal forum to explore what IoT means to their organization and Â how to apply the concepts in their business.
How will attendees be able to apply this knowledge?
The attendees can jumpstart their IoT development right after the Bootcamp. They will be able to choose the right development board, tools, and cloud the cloud platform to develop their IoT solution.
