Flow-Based Programming for JavaScript - Henri Berguis @ BWS'17

bulgariawebsummit.com NoFlo is a flow-based programming environment for JavaScript. Originally built for Node.js systems automation, the same visual development tools can also be used for developing full-stack applications from the browser to microcontrollers like Arduino. With NoFlo developers build their applications by wiring data streams together between different pre-built or custom components.
Microservices - an architectural pattern we recommended in our 2012 International PHP Conference keynote - is pretty popular these days.

How Eclipse Hono enables device-related communication for the IoT

Connectivity is at the heart of IoT solutions. Devices (things) need to be connected to a backend component where the data and functionality of the devices is leveraged to provide some higher level business value. IoT solution developers can pick from a wide array of existing (open source) technology to implement a device connectivity & management layer for the particular type of devices at hand.

Flowhub won the award for technical brilliance at #BCX17 Open Hack Challenge. Congrats also to the overall hackathon winners!
I've been attending the Bosch Connected Experience IoT hackathon this week at Station Berlin. Bosch brought a lot of different devices to the event, all connected to send telemetry to Eclipse Hono. To make them more discoverable, and enable rapid prototyping I decided to expose them all to Flowhub via the MsgFlo distributed FBP runtime.
It has always been easy to wrap existing JavaScript code into NoFlo graphs - just write a component that exposes its functionality via some ports. Going the other way and exposing a NoFlo graph to JS land was also possible but cumbersome. With NoFlo 0.8.3 we now made it super easy with the new asCallback API.
