Getting started with Espruino, a JavaScript interpreter for microcontrollers

4 hours 20 min ago
If you've used microcontrollers like the Arduino before, you might be used to pushing compiled code onto the device and then just hoping it does what it's supposed to.

It also filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission seeking to block the import of smartphones from manufacturers like Sony, LG, BlackBerry, Samsung, etc. under the theory that every imported phone contains patent-infringing software.

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way.
