Today’s guest is Co-founder and VP of business development at Global Cache. Global Cache makes connectivity products that let programmers like me control and automate pretty much anything using whatever software we like.
In an industry full of propriertary solutions, this is quite the unique approach. That’s why I am really looking forward to learning a lot today from Robin Ford.
Today’s episode is a little different. Instead of interviewing a person, we review a University project that is changing it’s traditional control systems to Raspberry Pi’s and Raspberry Pi Touchscreens. Joining us from the Brigham Young University OIT AV Services team to discuss this project are Daniel Wells: Director of AV Engineering, Brad Streeter: Chief Engineer and Joe Blodgett: Primary Developer of the open source AV control and management solution.
The project can be found here:
You can’t know what kind of interfaces the customer will need. Giving them an API gives them the freedom to adapt the system as their needs change.
Active learning classrooms can have up to 10 displays. Because commodity hardware is so affordable, BYU is able to deploy a touchscreen control systems for almost every video display.
Microservers running in a Docker container could be an interesting way to create cross platform device drivers.
The SALT stack can be used to manage policies and security updates on Linux devices.
The ELK stack can be used to store and visualise data.
