My name is Ivan. I’d like to tell you about a new programming language we’ve developed - xod.io
Unlike PD, it does not focus on music and sound processing, so the target audience is much wider. But it still can be of interest for you guys =)
XOD is a visual language for microcontrollers and is compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other boards with a bunch of widespread modules. No firmata or other high-level tricks used, just regular compilation.
We used functional reactive programming principles and added visuality.
We will publish the XOD language, XOD IDE, and library sources on GitHub once launched.
Right now, we are looking for testers for an early access to the XOD private alpha. We believe that with the support of the community we’ll be able to build a fun, and powerful programming language that isn't tied in to any one hardware vendor.
