pluralsight: Raspberry Pi for Developers

Raspberry Pi for Developers - Online Training Course for Developers: @ pluralsight
"Raspberry Pi is a low-cost computing platform that provides a way to building interesting applications using common programming languages. It also opens up the possibility of interesting hardware scenarios as well. This course will cover the basics of what you need to get up and running with the Raspberry Pi."

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

The Raspberry Pi has a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC),[3] which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU,[12] and was originally shipped with 256 megabytes of RAM, later upgraded to 512 MB.[4][13] It does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, but it uses an SD card for booting and persistent storage.[14]

The Foundation provides Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions for download.[15] Tools are available for Python as the main programming language,[16][17] with support for BBC BASIC[18] (via the RISC OSimage or the Brandy Basic clone for Linux),[19] C,[16] Java[20] and Perl.[16]

IoT: secure gateway

New gateway offers secure communication for the Internet of things:

"KAAZING Gateway 4.0 JMS Edition with Enterprise Shield aims to deliver secure enterprise messaging systems. Based on the HTML5 WebSocket standard it provides a scalable full duplex solution with near-zero latency."

"Smart Data" (Semantic Web)

Forget big data, here comes 'smart data': Semantic Web Meetup - Technical.ly Philly:

"Adding more data isn’t the solution to all problems. Getting value from data comes down to how easily you can do something with it.

Smart data is data with semantics attached. Semantics gives data meaning. More specifically it creates data with computer understandable meaning"

"Stardog is the leading RDF graph database that has semantic search capabilities built-in."

IoT: Apple's "Smart Home"

DailyTech - Report: Apple to Take on Home Automation with “Smart Home” Platform at WWDC:


"The earlier filing (Patent No. 8,577,392) described how an iPhone or iPad could be used to control “lighting systems, security systems, garage-door openers, music controllers, climate controllers, or kitchen appliances” – in fact it could be similar in scope to AirPlay and iBeacon, but geared towards home automation products and appliances."
