Debut of Windows 10 IoT: Get a Head Start | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Microsoft is extending the reach by adding Windows 10 IoT to the list

Although Windows 10 is not RTM yet, the following are the rumored version:

•Windows 10 (for inexpensive tablets; possibly called Windows 10 RT)
•Windows 10 (for traditional PCs)
•Windows 10 Enterprise

However Microsoft is extending the reach by adding Windows 10 IoT to the above list.

It is Windows 10 for embedded and supports universal apps and drives and can work for the whole spectrum of devices from simple devices to complicated industrial devices. With this additional version the Windows 10 is surely driving towards the OnePlatform concept.

In the previous link you find a whole lot of links to Windows 10 and IoT that you should review to see how deep are the roots.

If you want to be in the game get youreslf a Raspeberry Pi2 ($35) which is selling like hot cakes. I am not exaggerating. Go and purchase here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/raspberry-pi-2-on-sale/

Before you order get to know some of the facts about what you get for $35 from the previous MSDN blogs link.

After buying it go this site and register yourself as a Windows Developer here:

Enjoy!
Legal note: I am not receivng a cent from either Microsoft or Raspberry.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
