Other than the near omniscience of Edgar Dijkstra, I don’t think any prediction of the future of software development has been so dead-on as Atwood’s Law. JavaScript is everywhere: running applications in browsers, running the servers that feed HTML to the browser, and running database engines, to name a few. It should be no surprise, then, that JavaScript can also be used to control off-the-shelf hardware, circuits and other electronics like the Arduino platform. Through the use of frameworks like Rick Waldron’s Johnny-Five for NodeJS, and the “StandardFirmata” software package for Arduino, you can write JavaScript on your computer and use it to control and manipulate nearly any aspect of an Arduino-based hardware setup.
