IoT Overview with Jeremy Foster
The Internet of Things is the concept that traditionally analog objects, like thermostats and lightbulbs, can be given digital guts and connected to the internet to create more value for users. From Nest thermostats to Phillips Hue lightbulbs, these connected things are starting to enter the mainstream. According to recent estimates by Gartner, over eight billion connected “Things” will be in use in 2017, with that number ballooning to over twenty billion by 2020.
Jeremy Foster is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and the host of Microsoft Virtual Academy’s “Introduction to Azure IoT” course. In this episode, host Jared Porcenaluk joins Jeremy to discuss developing for the Internet of Things.
