Programmer's Paradise

Demosphere Todo Nodebot
Demosphere Todo Nodebot in action.
Several members of Demosphere's Development Team attended the 5th annual JSConf in Florida.

JSConf brings together the best JavaScript (JS) programmers at a three day conference that showcases the future of JS.

The Demosphere team absorbed lots of great ideas to incorporate into our own development processes to help elevate the groundbreaking products we are delivering to groups like yours!

In one event, the Bitovi Nodebots competition, our own Charly Ovando and Arild Shirazi teamed up to hack together Arduino-based robots and program them using only JS.

Check out the video to see the Demosphere Toro Nodebot take down the competition ... literally!
