The Internet of Things is about connecting internet-enabled devices that relay information back to us, to cloud-based applications and to each other (device to device).

On the 12th of October we'll discuss the best practices and tools to efficiently build IoT apps for the cloud, including the use of voice interfaces, with the help of two extraordinary speakers from AWS IoT and Amazon Alexa.
