Seminar on "Rapid IoT apps development using Docker Containers"

as part of PhD studies in Information Engineering at Università Mediterranea di Reggio Calabria February 2022 
Containers are a lightweight approach to virtualization that developers can apply to rapidly develop, test, deploy, and update IoT applications at scale. Docker is an open platform for container-based virtualization. Docker makes it fast and easy to build containers and to deploy them just about anywhere: in a private or public cloud, within a local VM, or on physical hardware including IoT devices.  This course will focus on the use of containers for the development and prototyping of applications, with a strong focus on IoT and networking. The approach of the course is mainly practical, presenting the topic of Docker Containers through examples, integrating services and protocols like LoRAWAN, MQTT, REST, time-series database (e.g. InfluxDB), server agents (e.g., Telegraf), and so on.


This material is made public, so that everyone can enjoy it, obviously without any responsibility for their use. The philosophy is similar to that of the FSF, but without all that fuss about freedom and democracy :)
