Developing with Docker

Working on Docker (https://www.flickr.com/photos/134416355@N07/31518965950) In my last post about Docker, I went over container theory and some basic Docker commands. In this post, I will cover using Docker in an application development workflow. We’ll look at developing a Python/Flask API in a container using Docker.

To keep current with arguably the worlds most popular programming language, I decided to use Java in a project that I’m working on in my off hours. In that project (which gathers and analyzes economic data) I decided to use Maven. Even-though my small project doesn’t […]

Recording and Replaying GPS Data

Getting GPS Data from the Ublox NEO-6M GPS Module

We use them to monitor equipment and the environment, also to control machines in ways such as automating tasks and/or responding to certain environmental conditions. I work on the enablement team, therefore it’s part of my mission to facilitate other teams in their goal achievement. The automation team is responsible […]
