The Beagle Bone Black is an Altoids-tin-sized $45 Open Source Hardware Linux computer. It can be programmed in pretty much any language, since “it’s just Linux, but small”.
“BoneScript is a Node.js library specifically optimized for the Beagle family and featuring familiar Arduino function calls, exported to the browser.”
Tonight at NERP, the inimitable Drew Fustini will be presenting a quick refresher on BoneScript and then an introduction more advanced BoneScript capilbities using the BaconCape:
“an add-on board meant to give you access to some hardware to help build your understanding of doing basic embedded I/O on BeagleBone”
