"Smart Products and Microsoft Services" (you could also say "Internet of Things with Microsoft Datacenter Services") is the topic of this very long, 110 minute presentation.
But before I'll let you watch it, allow me to apologize for completely skipping the first quarter of 2014 here on Subscribe!Happy New Year!
It's been a busy time here in my basement in Germany and over in Redmond and on the road, and to make up for the long drought, I recorded an extended director's edition of the "Smart Products and Microsoft Services" talk I gave at the CeBIT trade show and several other conferences in recent months and also added a section about "Project Reykjavik" that I've been working on (and which is the reason for the long break) and that Todd first mentioned and showed in his BUILD talk last week. I don't have a demo in this talk, but I'll have that coming up soon.
The video is probably really too long, but the upside of the videos here on Channel 9 are that you can pause it when the popcorn bag is empty and you need to get a new one.
The scenarios I talk about are about Public Transportation systems and Connected Car, and you may recognize the transportation scenario from my "Internet of Things or Thing on the Internet" blog rant. I also give a refresher on Service Assisted Communication in the context of the Reykjavik discussion.
The PowerPoint deck for this presentation is here.
