In Firmata post we established that we can have Python or Node.js application running on a computer; that can be a Single Board Computer like Raspberry Pi running Rasbian or Windows 10 IoT and can control and get sensor data from the Microcontrollers like Arduino or ESP8266
Check out https://github.com/ms-iot/python for how you can develop ...
As soon as we have more than one IoT “thing” to manage; we need some kind of management; it quickly becomes cumbersome to use and manage the “smart devices”. We can use Shields like Ethernet, Wifi or GSM with Arduino or use ESP8266 with Arduino or on its own for connectivity, but we need some kind of server where all these devices connect to and ...

Containers in general and Docker Containers in particular are becoming popular everyday mainly because they allow us to have a componentized environment to run the ...
Visual C++ for Linux Development is the Visual Studio 2015’s extension by Microsoft that lets us write C++ code in Visual Studio for Linux machines and devices. It connects to the machine or device over SSH and uses machine / device’ g++, gdb and gdbserver to provide compilation and debugging experience from within Visual Studio. After installing ...
We made Docker Container using a Dockerfile in the GlusterFS post that can mount a GlusterFS volume (running on Raspberry Pis); lets extend our Dockerfile and add Samba Server to expose the mounted directory as Samba Share so it can be accessed from Windows. For this we need to add these additional lines into the Dockerfile RUN apt-get -y ...
GlusterFS is a scale-out network-attached storage file system that has found applications in cloud computing, streaming media services, and content delivery networks. GlusterFS was developed originally by Gluster, Inc. and then by Red Hat, Inc., as a result of Red Hat acquiring Gluster in 2011, says the Wikipedia. Its a distributed file system ...

Part 5: Rancher–First Application
Lets run a Node application in Docker on Raspberry Pi; for the proof of concept; I will be using a simple hello world app and a GIT/SSH ...
Docker allow us to package our application with all its dependencies into a standardized unit; the application run in the Container that has everything it needs to run and this is kept in isolation from the other Container running on the Server. Its architecturally different from Virtual Machine and are more portable and efficient; they share the ...
Part 1: Staging Node Application Part 2: Staging Node Application on Raspberry Pi Before commissioning the Raspberry Pi; it would be nice if we setup some monitoring; so we can correlate any issue in the field with device status. This becomes important especially for devices like Raspberry Pi that has limited resources. The simplest and ...
