NEW PRODUCT – Making Things Smart – JavaScript for Microcontrollers – by Gordon Williams


Author Gordon Williams writes, “We humans have endless imaginations. ‘Making’ — whether that’s painting, designing, building, or programming — can be one of the most satisfying human experiences. Standing back from a creation and thinking, ‘I made that,’ is one of the best feelings I know.”

Whether you’re into robotics or other forms of electromechanics, Make: Making Things Smart is a great, approachable resource for beginner and intermediate makers. This instructional book lays out the ABCs of programming with engaging, but inexpensive homemade projects, giving YOU a solid, hands-on foundation in Javascript and Espruino. You only need everyday household tools (and the Espruino microcontroller) for these fun devices!

We’re huge fans of the Espruino – the world’s first open-source JavaScript microcontroller! This little board has an STM32 microcontroller pre-programmed with Espruino all ready to go so you can start playing with Javascript-microcontrollers. The Espruino is a tiny computer with a JavaScript interpreter, allowing for instant feedback from whatever device you’re working with. Simply set up your code with the Espruino and send it to the device without having to wait for the board to ‘flash.’

The Espruino’s fast response time has a lot of advantages. It allows for quick and easy debugging and is a great way to test your project before your big reveal. In addition, you can control the Espruino from almost anything – Windows, Mac OS, Linux, RasPi, Android, anything that can talk to a USB Serial port.

This book is a perfect partner for learning Making and Electronics and JavaScript with Espruino – it’s very easy and very satisfying!
