Stepping into the IoT world with JavaScript

Web developers across the globe have been empowering the web with JavaScript applications for years and have been taking the scripting language to new heights above and beyond its original implementations. Through the power of JavaScript APIs, frameworks and open web APIs, JavaScript developers can expand their existing skill set to empower devices and technology poised to enter the homes and attire of the future. In this presentation, I’ll provide an overview of how JavaScript developers can get involved with technology such as Ninja Blocks, Arduinos, the Leap Motion, Android (via on{X}), the Pebble Watch and more. It will provide an overview of the Internet of Things ecosystem from the perspective of the JavaScript development community.

My presentation will begin with an overview of technology that can use JavaScript in one way or another, whether as its primary form of scripting or as a supporting technology bringing further capabilities to the device. I’ll be covering technology such as Ninja Blocks, Arduinos, the Leap Motion, Android (via on{X}), the Pebble Watch, Google Glass (via Wearscript), Oculus Rift (via vr.js), Raspberry Pi, awe.js, Tessel, Espruino and the Myo armband.
