For some while I keep finding around me things related to Makers, Quadcopters, and algorithms. At first I thought that it is just by chance... That IoT is nice, and Makers are having fun, and algorithms are just another way of saying parallel programming and so on... Apparently there is something very unique that connects all these seemingly unrelated areas. You know, it takes a while to realize it, but: if everyone at work speaks Martian, and your barman speaks Martian, and you go back home and your wife speaks Martian, then you probably live on Mars!
Managing a fleet of IoT devices and deploying code is no easy task. Resin.io changes the workflow by leveraging Git and Docker technology!
How It Works
When you have new code for your end devices, all you need to do is simply perform a "git push". Resin.io builds your code into a Docker container and deploys it onto the device if/when it's online! Below is an image describing the process, found on Resin.io's website:
The Intel® Edison Cloud and Middleware library,iotkit-comm, allows network-connected devices to conveniently discover and communicate with each other and the cloud. More specifically, the iotkit-comm library enables developers to write distributed applications composed of clients and servers. This library was designed primarily for Intel® Edison platform, but works well on other platforms too. Iotkit-comm comes in two flavors: C and node.js. This documentation focuses on the C version of the library.

This document is written for software developers who are developing native software applications with C and C++ on the Intel® Edison Development platform. It covers basic preparation for setting up your host to develop apps for the Intel® Edison Development Board, and provides a sample application for a pedometer. A pre-configured version of Eclipse can be downloaded from the Intel® IoT Software Downloads page
This document explains the configuration of the Wi-Fi* software stack on Intel® Edison development platform. It covers
- Wi-Fi* connections
- Access Point setup
- Wi-Fi* Direct
For example, it will explain how to scan available networks, auto-reconnect after a reboot, and disable power management. The reader should have a basic knowledge of the Linux* operating system and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The complete document is in a PDF.
This document explains how to configure the Bluetooth* software stack on your Intel® Edison board. It covers the BlueZ* software stack, basic Bluetooth operation, and the setup of various Bluetooth profiles including
The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v3 family now includes an instruction set called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2), which can potentially improve application performance related to high performance computing, databases, and video processing. To validate this statement, I performed a simple experiment using the Intel® Optimized LINPACK benchmark. The results, as shown in Table 1, show a greater than 2x performance increase using Intel AVX2 vs.
