Together, Windows 10 IoT and a Raspberry Pi are one of Microsoft’s visions of IoT in the Windows world. IoT is not only for big industries and manufacturers – it’s also for you if you have ideas about what to automate or improve at home or your work.

This presentation focuses on a real-life IoT system that supports brewing Eisbock beer. The sample device is built on a Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 IoT. It includes temperature sensors to measure beer and ambient temperature. There is a Windows 10 Universal Application that allows you to control the process and read metrics from the Raspberry Pi. Data from the Pi will be later visualized using charts. The presentation goes through all the steps of building such a solution.

  • Target audience: developers, architects
  • Technical level: 300
  • Slides/demos: 20/80
  • Duration: Choose between the 1h or 2h version

Topics Covered

  • Windows 10 IoT on RaspberryPi 2
  • Windows 10 IoT background services
  • Communicating with connected sensors
  • Using Microsoft Azure IoT Hub
  • Using stream analytics to process sensor data
  • Visualizing sensor data in web, desktop, and mobile using Power BI
  • Reading sensors data from Universal Windows Applications

If an event venue has the required equipment, then there will be also real-time demo where the cooling solution measures the temperature of cooling water and an application shows measurements in real-time.
