Happy July, everyone! It's that time of the month again, so let's look at what you prototypers and DIYers have been interested in on DZone in the past 30 days or so as well as some news from around the Internet.

This month's post probably could have been subtitled "Doing Cool Things With a Raspberry Pi," but between you and me, I like the branding of "The Tinkerer's Edition."

Anyway, check out how you can run the TICK Stack on a Pi, how to build a weather station, and see how microservices and IoT are pushing each other forward.

Also, if you know a fair bit about MQTT and/or IIoT, please check out the bottom of this post for some paid writing opportunities!

IoT Around the Web

Microservices and IoT

It's hard to find a pair of trends hotter in the IT space right now than IoT and microservices. With that in mind, here's a great write-up from SD Times that showcases the synergy between these two trends and how microservices can enhance IoT development.

Looks Like Fog (Computing) Outside!

Fog computing has been a known entity for a while, but if you're just getting into the edge of IoT, here's a good breakdown of fog computing and what it brings to your systems.

Build Your Own Smart Camera

And now for my compulsory "cool IoT project" entry. There's no shortage of uses for a smart camera, so if you're interested, here's a start-to-finish guide to getting one set up and coded!
