Today's ITUnity Champ:

Lynn Langit

Lynn Langit

Cloud Architect, Lynn Langit Consulting
Blog: https://lynnlangit.com/
Twitter: @lynnlangit

Langit does consulting, training and implementation across the big three cloud platforms (AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Azure). She also knows her way around data platforms on all three clouds, plus a thing or two about NoSQL and Hadoop. (Her “Hadoop Fundamentals” online course has been watched by more than 250,000 people, according to her bio.)

She also is the co-founder, director and lead courseware author for Teaching Kids Programming, which is a project for teaching kids ages ten and up to learn to code using Java or SmallBasic. A regular on the conference speaking circuit, she also is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in the Data Platform area, as well as an AWS Community Hero and Google Cloud Developer Expert

This talk Langit gave at QCon in Brazil last year is interesting, as it addresses the intersection and integration of the cloud and Internet of Things:

The Cloud-Centric Internet of Things

I’ve been both working with and speaking on enterprise cloud-based IoT architectures. Recently, the QCon conference team published my keynote talk ‘Cloud-centric Internet of Things’ which I delivered in São Paulo, Brazil in April of this year. In this hour-long talk in addition to reference IoT architectures for both AWS and Azure, I cover these topics:

  • The IoT Market Landscape
  • Core IoT Concepts
  • Cloud IoT vendors compared
  • Lessons learned / best practices from building and enterprise IoT application
