Published February 2, 2013 in Technology

JavaScript is everywhere, but one of the most fascinating areas is in the crossroads of distributed, real time applications and microcontrollers. Take a look into the world of Node.js, HTML5 Connectivity APIs, and Embedded Linux, and how this world is changing the traditional client and server relationship. Explore the impact these trends are having on the HTML5 user interface, see demos of JavaScript powered microcontrollers (Arduino, XBee, Beaglebone, and the Raspberry Pi), learn asynchronous coding patterns, and discover some of the newer APIs that are helping JavaScript developers step out of the web browser and into the world of physical computing, robotics, and hardware.
