Mission CTO Jonathan LaCour will also be speaking from experience on how to leverage AWS Lambda, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon API Gateway, and Amazon QuickSight to build an Internet of Things (IoT) application. The 12:30pm session, “Lessons from the Backyard: A Connected BBQ Grill and Smoker,” details how LaCour leveraged these technologies to enable his grill and smoker to stream data about his cooking to an Amazon S3 data lake (complete with enabling an Amazon Alexa skill, data visualization, social media integration). “I expect this session to leave attendees both better informed on how to utilize different AWS solutions together for IoT applications, and hungry for BBQ ribs,” LaCour said.
