Javascript for Things with Espruino


Espruino is an open source Javascript interpreter for microcontrollers.

In autumn 2013 Espruino was launched through a Kickstarter campaign. It raised 5x its original target and resulted in the creation of the open source hardware Espruino Board - the world's first Javascript run microcontroller board. Like Arduino, but programmed in a live interactive way with Javascript, Espruino is perfect for beginners. It lets you run code as you type so you can iterate quickly, making it also great for those who like to tinker.

Espruino today has a thriving open source community coming up with a number of interesting applications including programming Espruino from your phone. This talk describes what Espruino is capable of as well as giving demos of Espruino in action for some easy-to-replicate home automation tasks.

We also take a first look at using Eclipse tools with Espruino, in particular the Orion project.
