Something I've never tried is to create an Access Point (AP) to build in the Pi a small network. This network can be descentralized or not. If you have internet, it can be useful to filter content from/to a network through the internet, and if you don't have internet connection (you are far away from civilization), can share files, create a web server for testing,... Today we'll see this second case using hostapd with a wireless inexpensive adapter that maybe you have in your desk. I'll use as operating systemDietPi although it may work with other Debian based distros.
it's so hot here!. I don't know if in your cities will be like here in Huelva (Spain): Minimum of 35 degrees, sun and heat scorches as you walk on the street. The only way to be fresh as a vegetable is reading the Pi World section with air conditioner at home...
No, I have not become paranoid playing Pokemon Go and I didn't take vacations. Development has taken the most part of my time and I want to leave everything ready before August. Today I took a spin around the Net and I have find the project NodeCode, a platform for "connecting things". They have focused on reducing the complexity of SBC connected together using a fairly easy to understand platform which is based on the union of nodes according to functionality.
Bridge Raspberry Pi Devices With IoT Platform NodeCode
This quick video shows how you can connect the pins on two different devices, in this case Raspberry Pis, to each other using connections made in software.
This is done with a Raspberry Pi Model B and a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B but these could be done with any other board.
Apache Quarks is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Quarks provides efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.
If you are interested, I let you some links and a video. I hope it like you.
