If you are looking to develop or just learn about the Internet of Things IoT you might be interested in a new awesome Raspberry Pi stack that has been created by Matthew Saunders a SysAdmin Developer.
The Pi stack has been built to explore the communications between IoT devices and the Internet, including the APIs, encryption, protocols, and algorithms that will make IoT possible.
Saunders the creator of the Raspberry Pi stack explains more about its construction :
The programming language I am planning to use is called Go (GoLang). The beauty of Go is that it can be compiled for multiple platforms (Linux (ARM/x86), Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS) and results in a single statically compiled executable. The Raspberry Pi Stack was created using the following components :
• Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Desktop (Quad Core CPU 900 MHz, 1 GB RAM, Linux)
• Samsung Memory 32GB Evo MicroSDHC UHS-I Grade 1 Class 10 Memory Card
• Anker 60W 6-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ
• NETGEAR GS108UK 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch
• 50 pack Brass M3x10mm Female Screw PCB Hex Pillars Standoffs Spacers
• 50 pack 10mm Body Long M3x6mm Male Female Brass Pillar Standoff Spacer
• 50 pack PC Mounting Computer Screws M3 x 1/4in Long Standoff
• 10 pack multi coloured Cat5e cables – 0.5 meter
• 6 pack Anker 1ft Micro USB Cables High Speed USB 2.0 A Male to Micro B Cables
• Plasticard Sheets A4 White 2.5mm When purchasing the components, I assumed that the mounting holes on the Raspberry Pi 2 were wide enough to accept the 3mm wide screw on the standoff spacers. I was wrong, but I believe that I now have a better solution. The holes are M2.5, drilled to 2.9mm wide.
