Building Droids with JavaScript - Andrew Fisher

A session at DDD Perth 2016

Saturday 27th August, 2016

11:10am to 11:55am (WST)

Andrew Fisher @ajfisher https://nodebotsau.io

IOT is a *big deal* with billions being spent in the sector globally and a rapid proliferation of devices being connected to the Internet. Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD do it as the case of internet connected kettles that leak security details shows.

NodeBots use web technologies - namely JS - to interact with hardware, enabling physical things that can interact with the Internet and the web.

The aim of this session is to introduce developers to the hardware & software stack and show what it is capable of and how to work with it. Examples will showcase physical & software systems working together.

Attendees should go away from the session armed with the information needed to start their own explorations in the hardware space.
