It’s almost exactly five years since I powered up my first Raspberry Pi – a baffling 12th birthday present! In this talk I’ll share my 5 year coding journey from HTML & PHP via Node.js to (No)SQL and Docker. Along the way I’ll show some atrocious git commits, some awful hacks and some awesome projects. These include a containerised URL shortener, an instant food calorie calculator and an exam revision app that all really should have used Docker. I’ll go into detail on my latest Docker-based RPi cluster (inspired by Captain @AlexEllisUK) with it’s PiGlow load monitor and servo-based physical load detector. I’ll explain how Alex’s support and advocacy got me invited to DockerCon and give a demo of a Raspberry Pi-driven hardware gauge to monitor a Docker Swarm in real time.
