JavaScript On Things (Manning)
Monday, 04 June 2018

With the subtitle "Hacking hardware for web developers", this book introduces programming for small electronics, and author Lyza Danger Gardner promises that if you know enough JavaScript to hack a website together, you'll be making things go bleep, blink, and spin faster than you can say "nodebot." Practical from the outset, and beginning with blinking on Arduino, this fully illustrated, hands-on book looks at JavaScript toolkits like Johnny-Five along with platforms including Raspberry Pi, Tessel, and BeagleBone, with project showing how to wire in sensors, hook up motors, transmit data, and handle user input.
