Providing a Blockchain session to Top leaders worldwide during Microsoft ENVISION in Orlando !

So glad to have been selected to provide a session on Blockchain with Connected Cars and Insurance, at the Microsoft ENVISION event in Orlando. I was lucky enough to have been invited as a guest, as part of my Regional Director’s Role. Otherwise it would have cost a fortune !

ENVISION is a Great event where Microsoft invites on stage for instance Michelle OBAMA, which was just an EXCELLENT and Historical moment for me. with less than 5 000 people attending ENVISION, and about 25 000 people for the INGNITE that was held simultaneously.

Final preparation in the morning before I jump in ; notice the healthy food !!
(to be honest, I’m the kind of “work hard, play hard” !! and we did party all night long, and I missed the VIP breakfast that Microsoft has prepared for us at the Hilton !).

Training on IoT Cloud Azure for yNov students

Igor Leontiev and I were presenting the IoT and the Cloud Azure to dozens of students for a month ! with Labs and Hands-on. All in French, the best studends did win …. a job offer !!  Here is the program !



INTRODUCTION :Le domaine de l’internet des objets est actuellement en pleine croissance et est déjà un des secteurs technologiques qui subit l’évolution la plus forte. A la fois utilisé dans la domotique, le contrôle d’appareil de productions, la récupération et le traitement d’informations, ce secteur ouvre des portes à des développements multiples.

OBJECTIF: Comprendre les enjeux de l’IoT en 2017 (Internet of Things, ou en français, Internet des Objet connectés). Nous aborderons les concepts généraux et verrons pourquoi l’année 2016 marque une rupture dans l’IoT, notamment avec les Top 3 plateformes d’IoT (Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM IoT). Et verrons en quoi ils se distinguent l’un des autres.

Au-delà de la théorie, nous verrons les architectures IoT et BigData modernes, et verrons comment les implémenter rapidement avec AWS et Azure IoT, et en quoi ils sont révolutionnaires en termes de services proposés (contrairement à avoir de l’infrastructure IoT uniquement).



  • · Introduction IoT, enjeux
  • · Méthodologies de gestion de projet
  • · Architectures BigData/IoT/Lambda
  • · Système de liaison et échanges (protocoles)
  • · Les capteurs, et les Gateway
  • · Exemple de réseau (Sigfox, LoRa…)


  • · Du développement sur des machines de faibles puissances et Raspberry PI
  • · Récupérer les données des capteurs
  • · Traiter les données en local et sur le Cloud IoT



Développer une solution complète basée sur une approche IoT. Ce sujet sera décomposé en deux parties :

  • une avec la technologie OpenSource NodeRed en « sujet libre » (sans soutenance orale),
  • et autre en « sujet libre » avec un déploiement, par exemple sur la plateforme IoT nommée Microsoft Azure IoT (avec soutenance orale).
