Many people in software development get the itch to do more with their skills and hardware is becoming that outlet for them.

It's often said "JavaScript is everywhere", and it's never been more true than it is today. Several crowdfunding efforts have spawned a new market in small, affordable electronic devices that can run JavaScript natively. JavaScript can be used to read from inputs from a wide variety of sensors and can output to all sorts of output devices. Not only that, these devices can be used to talk to web services and pair nicely with your existing back-end skills.

As a hardware-curious developer with all these choices out there it's difficult to navigate the landscape and choose an appropriate solution for your project. This talk will address the pros and cons of each solution and provide you a clear path on the start of your JavaScript hardware adventure.
