JavaScript breaks into IoT via JerryScript

Michelle Gienow:

The recent release of the Fitbit Ionic marked Fitbit’s first true smartwatch. More significant to the JavaScript developer community, though, is the fact that the Ionic was produced and shipped using JerryScript, a lightweight JavaScript engine built to power the Internet of Things.

I heard some hubbub about JerryScript last year at OSCON EU, but not much since. Fitbit using it in their first attempt at a production smart watch is a big vote of confidence for the project.
