Raspberry Pi Cluster project

This repository holds the code for the tutorials for creating a Raspberry Pi Cluster in Python.

Here I go through the basics of creating a simple logger to a distributed task assigment system.

Each tutorial will have a github release and tagged version. These can be found on github. This will make it easy to download the code for each tutorial.

The first few topics will start simple and continue to improve. Later we will get onto more complicated topics such as reaching a consensus of who must "lead" the cluster.

Questions comments and suggestions can be raised the specific blog post or by using issues here.

Tutorial 18 - Raspberry Pi Temp Monitoring

In this tutorial I collect the CPU temperature of the Raspberry Pi and report it as part of the node vitals.

This again is logged in the InfluxDB data store for review.
