Session Info

Building an IoT Massive Multiplayer Game in 60 Minutes

The realm of Internet of Things (IoT) is quite trendy these days. Take hundreds (or thousands, or millions) of devices, gather information at scale, make educated decisions and send commands back to the devices in order to get a really cool system up and running. Sounds easy? No? Well, while setting up an IoT system can be quite hard, there are platforms which make this process significantly easier.

In this one hour session we’ll see just how we can utilize the Azure IoT platform to build live on stage an IoT system which is actually a massive multiplayer game complete with sensors, devices, analytics and commands. Oh, and you will be a part of it too…

Bot-Tender: A Chat Bot Walks into a Bar

Chat bots are a rising and exciting new way to interact with your users and engage them wherever they are. You most probably have a web site and you might have a mobile application. But do you have a chat bot? Be it in Slack, Skype, Facebook or anywhere else – your users are already there, so why not allow them to interact with your service directly from there in a human, natural way?

In this session you’ll get to know the Microsoft Bot Framework and the Azure Bot Service, as we use them to build a real live bot bartender on stage and tackle all of the development issues one by one.
