JavaScript is good for just about everything now. You can do front-end and back-end development and even some machine learning. But did you know there are packages that let you create IoT projects written in JavaScript? You'll need a bit of hardware, but the code is all JavaScript.

In this talk, you'll learn how you can interface with an Arduino using a Bluetooth connection using a web app. We'll go over setting up the JohnnyFive library and we'll make a dog locator. By the end of this talk, attendees will know how to work with an IoT library in JavaScript to trigger actions on an Arduino.
