There is actually a whole market where you as a Smart Pascal developer can use your skills to deliver top of the line products. A market where archetypical languages like C++ and Delphi makes less sense. IOT is about adapting to technology quickly, pivoting on a dime, connecting hardware together in new and exciting ways. In such a market script engines makes more sense than heavy-duty native languages.
Smart Pascal and IOT
But naturally, you need to get a book on node.js and Espruino to know how to use these project-types properly. But they are all there and once you get into node.js and what you can do, the world really is your oyster.
The next update to Smart Mobile Studio
We are working very hard on getting the next version of Smart Mobile Studio ready for x-mas. While there will be bug fixes to the IDE (and a few new features as well), this update is primarily an update for the RTL and run-time library. We have tried very hard to keep things compatible with previous versions, but there will be changes that requires a bit of editing. But believe me, it will be worth it.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Better fragmentation of classes and unit files
- Namespace orientation
- New visual components
- Unified filesystem classes
- A full overhaul of all visual controls
- Plenty of bug fixes
- Faster execution time
- Better resource handling
- Wiki documentation!
Stay tuned for more in-depth look at all the new classes and the features they provide.
