Microsoft Corp has selected France to launch the First “IoT in a Day” event with SaaS Microsoft IoT Central


This is only the beginning of the History for “IoT in a Day”, a worldwide event where Microsoft Corp presents Azure IoT, including Microsoft IoT Central, the SaaS IoT product that eases greatly IoT, so much that even someone who doesn’t know coding can setup IoT project.


The specificity of “IoT in a Day” is that within 1 day, one could see an end-to-end IoT scenario : a bit of theories, a deep dive testimonial of customers, a manipulation of true devices with firmware upgrade and Wifi configuration, then Azure connection, with telemetry display ! Key success factors for IoT (based on worldwide feedback, official Eclipse IoT fundation framework and 40 IoT projects, and customers’ feedback)

Microsoft Corp has selected Igor Leontiev and I to organize this event, respectively Azure MVP and Microsoft Regional Director, after having passed a worldwide selection, backed up with 40 IoT projects and customer’s testimonials.


(see here for details of the day in French:

  • Welcome & Networking

  • Free lunch + networking with Microsoft Corp and France, LPG and VISEO
