👉 Getting Started with IoT on the Raspberry Pi
Ever wondered how to make your code physically interact with things in the real world? Got a home automation project in mind? We will cover:

o) How to get started with Raspberry Pi and C#
o) The numerous sensors and actuators you can control
o) How to navigate basic electronics
o) Different interfaces and how to program them
o) Physical demonstrations of devices at work
o) Azure IoT Hub to control your code from the cloud

In this hands on session we learn how to get set up programming in C# on your Raspberry Pi. We will program it to move things using solenoids, servos, check sensor readings and of course, blow things up, all using C#.

As an extension to this, we will then control the Pi remotely using the cloud (Azure IoT hub) to control our new found capabilities from afar.

This is a practical and hopefully fun demonstration on how you can get started quickly and explore this fascinating area of programming.
