Rapidly develop Internet of Things apps with Docker Containers

The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been driven in part
by the commoditization and accessibility of wireless modules, sensors, and
microcontrollers. But the IoT isn’t just big news for device manufacturers. As
the number and variety of connected devices increases, the demand for
applications to interface with those devices and to process the vast
quantities of data that they produce is also increasing. To match this growing
demand, web and mobile application developers will need to start to develop
for the IoT and adapt their current development practices to meet the
challenges of this new application area. One such development practice is the
use of containers. Containers are a lightweight approach to virtualization
that developers can apply to rapidly develop, test, deploy, and update IoT
applications at scale.
