Docker Captain Alex Ellis explains his favorite Docker Tip: how to use Docker to control hardware using a Raspberry Pi.

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.

I will be putting together a complete security system for RV's that is cellular network connected using Particle.io and Twilio. These tiny devices are perfect for this. The system will be container based using Docker. I will be releasing this as open source.

the disadvantage of docker on the pi is that it is a different chip architecture. meaning you cant use most of the prebuilt images on dockerhub.
