We are putting more computers in more places than ever before.
Everything from washing machines to parking meters are becoming
“smart”. Tom will show us how JavaScript is playing an important role
in the Internet of Things. We’ll explore what the Internet of Things
is and how the event driven nature of JavaScript makes whole new
classes of application possible. Expect exciting on-stage demos.
