The Internet of Things (IoT) is already all around us - the question is how do we take part in this awesome change in society. This talk,"Building IoT applications with AWS" will explore how to build an IoT application with Amazon followed by a light-hearted look at how to convert that knowledge into business and knowledge opportunities in these disruptive times.

Ian Massingham will deliver the main talk of how to build an IoT application on Amazon Cloud and Sam will answer questions on the possible business and employment opportunities the IoT presents. This will be an interactive talk on how to build an Amazon-based IoT application followed by a light-hearted discussion on the business and carrier opportunities the IoT presents.
