Microsoft IoT Virtual Bootcamp

Microsoft, Raspberry Pi and Hackster have partnered to deliver the first ever Virtual IoT Bootcamp, March 28-30, 2017.  Two tracks will be offered:

Commercial Track
March 28 + March 30, 2017 (7:30 AM – 2:30 PM PST) 

  • Keynote Industry Speaker
  • Windows 10 IoT solutions overview
  • Windows 10 IoT Enterprise deep dive
  • Installing IoT Enterprise hands-on Lab
  • IoT Enterprise Lockdown
  • Lockdown hands-on Lab
  • IoT Enterprise Security

Makers Track
March 29 + March 30, 2017 (7:30 AM – 2:30 PM PST) 

  • Opening Keynote with Eben Upton, Founder of Raspberry Pi
  • Windows 10 IoT solutions overview
  • Windows 10 IoT Core deep dive
  • Installing IoT Core hands-on Lab
  • Application development/deployment hands-on Lab
  • Advanced configuration hands-on lab

Microsoft is offering subsidized hardware so there's a fee for this event:

  • Commercial Track: USD 200 gets you an Intel Compute Stick
  • Makers Track: USD 200 gets you a Raspberry Pi 3 and a Seeed IoT Grove Kit for Windows (w/ display)
  • Both Tracks: USD 300

If you do the math, USD 300 is about CDN 400.  The Intel Compute Stick is listed at $190 + $5 shipping at newegg.ca. The Seeed IoT Grove Kit for Windows is listed at $200 and a Raspberry Pi 3 bundle is $75 at the Canadian Microsoft Store so by registering for both tracks, you save about $70 CDN.  Meh for the savings but yeah for the content! :-)
