Node.js and The Internet of Things

Last year, we interviewed Patrick Catanzariti and asked him if Javascript will be the language of IoT. It was one of our most shared Q&As. Charlie Key's talk at the Node Community Conference provides a nice overview of how Node is driving adoption of IoT. In software development, Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform runtime environment for developing server-side Web applications. Although Node.js is not a JavaScript framework, many of its basic modules are written in JavaScript, and developers can write new modules in JavaScript.

Here's his presentation and a look at where the market of the Internet of Things is and how technologies like Node.js (JavaScript) and the Intel Edison are making it easier to create connected solutions. 

The major topics include: 
* What is the Internet of Things 
* Where is IoT Today 
* 4 Parts of IoT (Collect, Communicate, Analyze, Act) 
* Why JavaScript is Good for IoT 
* How Node.js is Making a Dent in the Internet of Things 
* What npm Modules are used for Hardware (Johnny-Five, Cylon.js, MRAA) 
* What is the Intel Edison 
* How to Best Work with the Edison 
* Tips for Edison (MRAA, Grove Kit, UPM) 
* Where the World of JavaScript and IoT is Going Node.js
