What containers and unikernels can learn from Arduino and Raspberry Pi

LXer - Thu, 2016-05-26 00:08
Just the other day, I was speaking with a friend who is a mechanical engineer. He works on computer assisted braking systems for semi trucks and mentioned that his company has Arduinos all over the office. The idea is to encourage people to quickly experiment with new ideas.

It was a way for users to dip their toes into Ubuntu rather than drown at the deep end.

And yet…you are probably having a hard time recalling it.
