If you have ever conducted Docker on Raspberry Pi workshop during the Meetup event, you surely understand the pain in bringing up working infrastructure. Especially when you are dependent upon WiFi network of the hosting company, it becomes difficult as in every new Meetup venue, you need to plug your HDMI-equipped monitor into the Raspberry Pi using a standard HDMI cable and then configuring IP address so as to get it discovered over findPi Mobile application.

The HDMI cable is one of the most important piece of equipment that you can use with your Raspberry Pi, which means that in theory you can connect it to a wide selection of televisions and even modern desktop computer monitors. But in case HDMI cable is not available, then you might have to rely on alternative way of getting display device to configure Pi systems.

RPi LCD comes to the rescue..
