Create powerful blockchain queries with Hyperledger Composer
With the native, rich Query language in Hyperledger Composer, it's easy to perform complex and powerful queries on assets, transactions, and other resources. First, you model the query using Hyperledger Composer, and the query is deployed to the runtime Hyperledger Fabric. All that's left is to for you to consume the query by name in your application. You can also easily consume queries using REST APIs that are auto-generated by Hyperledger Composer. Without this capability, you'd have to construct ad hoc queries in your code and then labor to make sense of the results returned.

Set up a Docker Registry as a pull-through cache on Raspberry Pi
If you have a slow internet connection and multiple users downloading Docker images, then why not use it as a cache on a Raspberry Pi? This can save you time and bandwidth when using Docker. Raspberry Pi is amazing, because it is portable, cheap, and consumes negligible power. By creating the solution described in this tutorial, every time you download an image, it will be cached on the Pi; then, for all subsequent requests, the same image will be delivered from the local cache.

Rapidly develop Internet of Things apps with Docker Containers
The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been driven in part by the commoditization and accessibility of wireless modules, sensors, and microcontrollers. But the IoT isn't just big news for device manufacturers. As the number and variety of connected devices increases, the demand for applications to interface with those devices and to process the vast quantities of data that they produce is also increasing. To match this growing demand, web and mobile application developers will need to start to develop for the IoT and adapt their current development practices to meet the challenges of this new application area. One such development practice is the use of containers. Containers are a lightweight approach to virtualization that developers can apply to rapidly develop, test, deploy, and update IoT applications at scale.
