Microsoft is delighted to sponsor the Collaborations Workshop 2017, as part of our continuing support for the research community. To make sure everyone can get hands-on with Internet of Things development, we will be giving each participant a SparkFun Thing Azure IoT Starter kit, comprising an ESP8266 Thing Dev Board, sensors, LEDs, breadboard, and everything you need to start experimenting with IoT. Everyone will also be given access to Microsoft Azure, which provides easy-to-use cloud services for IoT.
Anyone can apply for an Azure for Research award for substantial cloud computing resources for your research project – it’s quick and easy to apply at www.azure4research.com. See you at CW17 and stay for the Hack Day (evening 28th-29th March) to see what we can build together!
