Docker is the newest craze in the devops world. It’s a tool that assists with application containerization using Linux Container technology. I decided to give it a try, but do it with a twist: I want to run docker inside a LXC container, essentially, run docker containers inside LXC containers. This inception style setup has a few benefits – It allows docker and its dependencies to be contained, isolated from the host machine. It also allows testing of different docker versions on different containers. It my case, I want to run docker under Ubuntu 14.04, without reformatting my entire Gentoo host.
About a year ago I pledged $39 for the Bleduino kickstarter and despite it arriving on my mailbox a few months ago, only today did I have time to start playing around with it. I also got a DHT22 temperature sensor, which I will use with the device. A quick disclaimer, I’m a beginner in Arduino and electronics and would describe my soldering skills as non-existent. Hence you will find no soldering in this post.
