My name is Victor Espina and I am a senior programmer, mainly VFP, C# and J avaScript. I am working on a project with a friend, using a Raspberry PI 3 board to basically collect data from a device connected to the Raspberry, save it to a local database and then send new collected data to a remote da tabase using a REST webservice.
My working machine is a MacMini running the last version of OSX, and I woul d like to know the best way to create a dev environment to create the progr ams I need for the Raspberry, without having the actual device.
I've try to follow a couple of guides to get a working Raspbian environment with no luck so far.
Also, I would like to know your suggestions regarding the best language to create simple daemons (my goal is to create two daemons: one that collects the data from the external device and save it to a local Sqlite db, and ano ther that reads this new data and post it to a remote REST webservice.
