Abstract: Robert Scoble (Tech Savvy Social Butterfly) is calling the next age of computing the “Age of Context”. Mobile devices, wearables, and other sensors are starting to become commonplace everywhere we look.
In this talk I will show you how – for under $50 – you can get involved and start experimenting with hardware that can help you to prototype interesting solutions and ideas in this new era. Included will be both Arduino, as well as the Raspberry Pi.
About the Presenter: Jon is a member of the technical staff at MCW, where he focuses on connected systems technologies. He is also a regular speaker and trainer for Pluralsight. Jon is most at home spelunking, trying to figure out how things work from the inside out. He is the author of RESTful.NET from O’Reilly, as well as Essential ASP for Addison-Wesley, and was a co-author of Mastering Visual Studio.NET for O’Reilly. Jon’s current major interest is helping people to understand the advantages of REST, but he sees a bright future for modeling as a way to build complex systems.
