Thanks to scriptr.io, coding for the Internet of Things (IoT) has never been easier.
The mission of scriptr.io is to help the maker community succeed by eliminating obstacles and enabling them to create powerful and useful projects as quickly as possible.
With the current excitement over IoT, scriptr.io CEO Rabih Nassar saw a great opportunity to, in his words, “make the lives of consumer and industrial IoT device and platform makers easier and more productive!”
While the Internet of Things (IoT) has dramatically expanded opportunities for developers and builders, it also presents a number of logistical challenges. IoT devices are usually constrained by limited processing capability and memory, making it nearly impossible to code complex integrations and business logic.
And now, scriptr.io has made creating APIs in the cloud even more simple — and even playful — by integrating Blockly into its platform.
Created by Google, Blockly is a visual editor that allows developers to build applications by piecing together code the same way you’d piece together a puzzle. Using a colorful, agile user interface to drag-and-drop code elements, Blockly is both practical and fun — allowing people with no programming knowledge to code effectively and easily.
Blockly is the perfect tool to use if you are looking to build quick prototypes and applications, or to orchestrate and automate devices for the IoT. Every variable, statement, or control structure is represented as a colorful visual object that users can piece together to create functionality. And now, thanks to scriptr.io, these can be turned into scalable web-services that drive an IoT application.
Scriptr.io enables developers to focus less on the tools to build and maintain infrastructure, and to concentrate more on what matters the most: building a great product. With scriptr.io — and now together with the simplicity of Blockly — developers for the IoT are bound only by their imagination.
Scriptr.io — headquartered in Manhattan’s historic Flatiron district — is proud to be a part of the dynamic NYC Silicon Alley scene. They will be exhibiting their new platform, alongside hundreds of other exciting startups, at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2015 Startup Alley on May 4-6, 2015.
Scriptr.io’s offices are located at 37 W. 26th Street, Suite 411, New York, NY 10010
