Realtime Embedded Systems with Javascript

Realtime Embedded Systems with Javascript

The BeagleBone is a real time embedded systems that you can program using an innovative Javascript (Node.js) interface. The Beaglebone is a powerful computer the size of a credit card, that has an ARM processor, runs Linux, and has lots of I/O pins which you can connect to all kinds of cool electronics. Using nothing but a browser, you can write Javascript which runs on the board and controls the I/O pins. You can build robot controllers, Internet controllable thermostats, music and video players, and much more using only Javascript.

Lightning Talks

We will open up for lightning talks (~5m) after the main talk. If you are interested, email me ahead at [masked] so I can post the abstract.

    Really interesting talk. The first use that came to mind for me was guitar stomp box processor!

      I know a guy who's working on something similar. Not on beagleboard, but he is a node guy. Could be a perfect match. I can put you in touch.

    Solid information that inspired me to go deeper with my Beaglebone Black interests and idea of building a real hardware product using it.

      Yes! I have one of these on order - this means you can run the espruino board on a small battery. The beaglebone requires a lot more power.

      I'm waiting on one too. Getting impatient though and thinking about getting a STM32 dev board and flashing espruino on it just to have something to play with until the real ones ship.
