What's New in TypeScript:
Paul started buying Sonos speakers for his home a couple months ago to get around the need to run wires for his home stereo. He was fascinated by the music streaming system, mainly the software used to synchronize the playing of music across multiple devices. So he started peeking under the hood to see how it all worked and if he could possibly learn to control it with custom code.
Paul ended up reverse engineering Sonos and in the process learned about the Upnp protocol. He eventually created a C# library that can be used to turn any device into a node on the Sonos network.
But Paul didn't stop there. He also added Azure Event Hub for cloud processing and Akka.Net to allow for high speed parallel event processing. And all this deployed on a raspberry pi!
Paul will have a live demos and plenty of code. This will be the perfect follow on presentation to Jeremy Fosters talk on the "Internet of Things".
