Javascript All the Things!

A session at Hill Country JS Meetup - November 2013

Atwood's Law: "any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript."
Some arbitrary Linux law: "If you can put Linux on it, someone will put Linux on it."
New JS Law: "If you can put linux on it, someone's going to put Node on it. Or they'll write their own, JS-based OS."

It's an awesome time to be a JS developer. People are putting JS wrappers, or even native JS, on all sorts of crazy devices: robots, drones, copters, phones, legos...the list goes on. This talk covers some of the ways Javascript is becoming not just the language of the web, but also a language of physical things. Some demonstrations of a physically-manifested nature will be shown, so wear socks (that will presumably be knocked off).
