Hardware-Hacking with Web-Technologies

Martin Schuhfuss - @usefulthink

Thanks to the raspberry-pi and several other ARM-Based platforms, it is not a problem anymore to have a small and cheap computer that is able to run node.js. Combined with their ability to connect to arbitrary hardware using GPIO it also offers a way to allow us JS-developers to interact with things. I will demonstrate and explain some of the basic concepts behind this and show you how to control a huge number of LEDs using node.js and other web-technologies.
