At Schuberg Philis, we want to stay close to the community. This matters to us as a leader in cloud technology: it lets us listen, learn, and also share knowledge and provide the opportunity to explore new technologies. Together with Tweakers, we organized an event showcasing deployments of Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions to Microsoft Azure. After opening with a quick introduction, we dove into the technology right away.
We believe that the best way to learn is through a hands-on approach. That’s why we created an interactive workshop that allowed participants to actively explore the potential of IoT and Microsoft Azure. The workshop presented the Tweakers with a challenge: connect a smart lightbulb to Microsoft Azure and make it change its color based on events collected through cloud-based services. An IoT-connected home beer tap initiated these events and streamed the data to an Azure IoT hub.
We also explored the possibilities of automating IoT deployment resources. We worked in groups with Schuberg Philis engineers, spontaneously joining different teams to help and discuss the challenge. Hungry after the workshop, we enjoyed dinner together to share stories and demonstrate even more possibilities of IoT in our Lab 271. We concluded the event with a keynote speech delivered by a Microsoft MVP who shared a wealth of cases and experiences from the field—leaving all participants inspired and sparked with new know-how. We all felt empowered to go create the next great thing.
