In this series of posts we show how a Raspberry Pi 4 can be used to create a personal cloud solution that is managed using Ansible and Docker — powerful tools that are used by many large scale cloud platforms, which automate configuration tasks and provide containerisation for applications.

A very lightweight monitoring system for Raspberry Pi clusters running Kubernetes.
Great new feature of the InfluxDB v2 time series databases and its Flux language : the gateways to SQL databases engines (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server…). More databases drivers to come in future releases.
When we purchased our new home (in Australia), I discovered a curious white device (photo below) in the meter box. After doing a google image search, I discovered it was an Efergy energy meter (https://efergy.com/efergy-transmitter/), which sounds pretty handy even though the wireless display was nowhere to be found.
Back in the summer of 2020 I won a Raspberry Pi with an Air Quality sensor as part of an internal competition to celebrate Earth Day 2020. Having set up the kit I then expanded it to include an additional sensor to capture some other weather related values, using the Raspberry Pi Weather Station project as inspiration.
A setup to build an amateur satellite ground stations that can tune, record and generate images for APT weather satellites and record audio from Amateur ones.
Goal: Practice the model of IoT (Edge) data streaming and its remote analysis (Cloud).
Part two of this series will cover base configuration for your Pis. Before we get started there are some prerequisites
Accessing your boat remotely is a common desire. Most people can access their home remotely, so it seems like it should be just as easy for your boat. But there are some limitations with the types of connectivity that most boaters have that make it a bit more challenging.
With the advent of streamlined Raspberry Pi + NMEA 2000 hardware, building a dedicated Signal K server has never been easier. Signal K is very powerful, but most people I talk to want to go a step further and have Grafana graphs and dashboards, along with other plugins and features.
