Microsoft is getting serious about the Internet of Things

IoT or the Internet of Things is becoming more and more salient technology trend these days. Big players like Microsoft and Google are playing a huge role in the development of this technology.

Wikipedia defines the internet of things as

the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing like devices with the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications

A thing, in the IoT, can refer to a wide variety of devices that range from heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals, an automobile with built-in sensors to field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue (Wikipedia)

Microsoft is considering IoT is an important dimension to its devices strategy and bringing Windows to more device

At Build 2014 event Microsoft demonstrating its vision for IoT and new capabilities it is providing for developers. Watch Windows and the Internet of Things | Build 2014 | Channel 9

In addition, Microsoft is expanding its flagship cloud platform Microsoft Azure by including Event hubs.

Event hubs helps solve data flow challenges where you want to ingest, persist, and process millions of events per second.

I will be conducting a session on “Cross-Site Publishing in SharePoint 2013”

SharePoint 2013 introduced a lot of new features in WCM. Cross-site publishing is a great feature that allows the site authors to publish content cross sites and manage the publishing through managed metadata, search, content search web parts and display template. In this session I am going to walkthrough what you need to plan for building a site that can benefit from cross-site publishing.
