JavaScript all the things

Talk presentation

JavaScript is omnipresent, it's running everything from small mobile phones to large servers in the cloud. But there's one place where JS is abundantly absent: the Internet of Things. Some small experiments are done in the hobbyist space by frameworks like Johnny-Five and JS runtimes like Espruino, but C is still the undisputed king for devices that are power- and battery-constraint. But why?! The same reasons why we love JavaScript on the web and on servers apply to smaller devices too: JS is safe, dynamic, fast to develop against, and it's asynchronous nature would be great for small network connected devices that mostly just respond to user input.

In this talk Jan Jongboom, Developer Evangelist IoT at ARM and JerryScript contributor, will go into the current state of JavaScript on embedded devices. He'll cover the developments among the industry, shows where JS is already applied, and what problems we'll need to solve to bring JavaScript to _all_ the things.
