June PADNUG - Let's Talk About the Internet of Things
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 Auditorium (HF3) Campus

In this course Microsoft's Jeremy Foster gives an introduction to the world of IoT - the Internet of Things. We’ll get definitions for various IoT terms and some bold predictions of the future where the internet is not so much a collection of devices as it is a collection of sensors and gadgets attached to people, vehicles, houses, and a lot more. And we’ll also get the basics of how to write software for these devices using the familiar and rather high level JavaScript language on Node.js. This means that instead of writing difficult code in languages such as C or Wiring, modern IoT hackers can write easy code and have access to the vast number of node modules that already exist. As an example project, you’ll meet Tweet Monkey and see what little it takes to put together your own maker project.

Galois tech talk: Internet of Things: From Small- to Large-Scale Orchestration
Galois Inc


The domain of Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly expanding beyond research and becoming a major industrial market with such stakeholders as major manufacturers of chips and connected objects, and fast-growing operators of low-power wide-area networks. Importantly, this emerging domain is driven by applications that leverage the infrastructure to provide users with innovative, high-value services. Because of this application-centric approach, software development plays a key role to realize the full potential of IoT.

In this talk, we argue that there is a continuum between orchestrating connected objects in the small and in the large, fostering a unified approach to application development. We examine the requirements for orchestrating connected objects and address them with domain-specific design concepts. We then show how to map these design concepts into dedicated programming patterns and runtime mechanisms.

Our work revolves around domain-specific notations integrated into a tool-based design methodology, dedicated to develop IoT applications. We have applied our work across a spectrum of infrastructure sizes; we present examples, ranging from an automated pilot in avionics, to an assisted living platform for the home of seniors, to a parking management system in a smart city.

The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow
Holliday Inn Portland West

The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow is an exploratory, first look workshop into how IoT leverages cloud technologies.

This four hour workshop is designed primarily for people working in the tech industry in companies with IoT projects and/or may find themselves needing to expand their knowledge beyond the local device and understand downstream architectures in the cloud. This workshop addresses how data from a device may be received and subsequently processed. This class is not about the device, it is about device data and cloud back ends.

This is a lecture-lab style course in which topics are presented by the instructor. Labs are completed by students during the workshop, or students may finish labs after the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop presumes no knowledge of Azure cloud products. It does presume some knowledge with making an IoT device using an Arduino or Raspberry PI and/or other such related “maker” experiences and skills.


Kent Stroker is a Senior Consultant at Microsoft IoT OEM.

In this workshop, we hope to introduce students to Azure Cloud, the Azure IoT portfolio, and streaming analytics and dashboards. We'll provide hands-on experience building a basic “cold” and “hot” path IoT, cloud-based, back-end processing architecture.

Here's a preview the first event that happened in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday, June 12th on YouTube: 1st half, 2nd half

Every participant attending this event will receive IoT completion certificates.


Since we want to make the most of our time at the workshop, please follow the instructions to prepare for the workshop before arriving. You can download everything from the github page here. It is strongly advised for students to print a copy of the lab handout for easy reference during the workshop.

Bring a laptop running Windows 10 that has wireless network capability. YES, you can use a virtual machine running on your mac or linux computer! Don't forget your power supply!

Do the following on your laptop:

Enable Developer Mode Enable Windows feature “Windows Subsystem for Linux” Make sure you can invoke a bash shell from a Command Prompt window Install Node.js v6.10.3 LTS from Install Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition (it's free!)

Create a Microsoft Azure subscription. Azure accounts are free for the first 30 days and come with $250 credit.


It's a good idea to plan on being able to provide your own hotspot connectivity. Packing an extension cord is often a good idea. A mouse is often nice too.

COURSE TOPICS Lab 1: Azure Cloud IoT Hub Lab Lab 2: Store Messages to Table Lab Lab 3: Data Visualization Web App Lab


This is a very cram packed 4 hours, come prepared to learn at a fast pace. Also, understand that this course will not make you an expert in Azure IoT, rather this is a first look at the depth and breadth of the Microsoft IoT technology stack and introduces to some of the major pieces of a typical IoT cloud architecture. You should come away from this workshop with a sense of “knowing what you do not know” and eager to learn more. There are many avenues for learning more and we will wrap the workshop with next steps and learning resources you may wish to explore. Look forward to seeing you at one of these workshops this summer!

The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow 2017 - Portland
Holiday Inn Portland West

We're excited to be coming to you for Hackster and Microsoft's biggest event yet! The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow is an exploratory, first look workshop into how IoT leverages cloud technologies.

This four hour workshop is designed primarily for people working in the tech industry in companies with IoT projects and/or may find themselves needing to expand their knowledge beyond the local device and understand downstream architectures in the cloud. This workshop addresses how data from a device may be received and subsequently processed. This class is not about the device, it is about device data and cloud back ends.

This is a lecture-lab style course in which topics are presented by the instructor. Labs are completed by students during the workshop, or students may finish labs after the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop presumes no knowledge of Azure cloud products. It does presume some knowledge with making an IoT device using an Arduino or Raspberry PI and/or other such related “maker” experiences and skills.

Inaugural Hardware Hackers Portland Meetup - Hacking appliances and prototyping connected things with Netduino and Xamarin.
PSU Business Accelerator

The hardware revolution is just beginning. Nest, Ring, Mellow; these are just the tip of the iceberg. Advances in hardware and software have opened a new world of connected possibilities that extends beyond just the consumer and into the industrial and commercial IoT world. And if you can develop apps, you can build hardware!

Howdy folks, Bryan Costanich here, and I'm super excited to announce the very first Hardware Hackers Portland meetup. Come and get inspired to build your own connected things as I walk through hacking household appliances into connected things that you can control with your phone using Netduino and Xamarin. Come learn how Netudino.Foundation (http://Netduino.Foundation) makes creating connected things in C# a piece of cake, with a massive library of peripheral drivers for sensors, LCDs, etc., and a handrolled API that makes building smart hardware a plug and play experience.

Much thanks to PSU Business Accelerator for graciously hosting us! You can find us in the Mt. Hood Room, and find directions here:
