Meet Node-RED, an IBM project that fulfills the internet of things’ missing link If you play around with enough connected devices or hang out with enough people thinking about what it means to have 200 connected gizmos in your home, eventually you get to a pretty big elephant in the room: How the heck are you going to connect all this stuff? To a hub? To the internet? To each other? It’s one thing to set a program to automate your lights/thermostat/whatever to go to a specific setting when you hit a button/lock your door/exit your home’s Wi-Fi network, but it’s quite another to have a truly intuitive and contextual experience in a connected home if you have to manually program it using IFTTT or a series of apps. Imagine if instead of popping a couple Hue Light Bulbs into your bedroom lamp, you bought home 30 or 40 for your entire home.

6 free mobile device emulators for testing your site The percentage of all web usage that comes from smartphones and other mobile devices is growing, and it won’t be long before mobile internet users overtake desktop and laptop users in terms of web traffic. So it’s a cardinal sin to ignore mobile users when you’re developing a website. One of the most important things you can do to make a website mobile-friendly is to test it on multiple smartphone and tablet platforms. Luckily, mobile emulators make it easy to do this. A mobile phone emulator lets you check the responsiveness and functionality of the website across different mobile platforms, such as iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry, without actually having the devices in hand.

PayPal Releases Kraken to Help Spur Node.js Adoption Michael Vizard, March 7th, 2014 PayPal, looking to provide an additional structure around the Node.js application framework, developed the Kraken implementation, a more secure and scalable framework for building commercial-grade applications. This week, PayPal is making Kraken available to the broader open-source community. Bill Scott, senior director of user interface engineering at PayPal, says Kraken is being shared with the rest of the Node.js community because its adoption outside of PayPal will spur its adoption within PayPal while at the same time making PayPal a more attractive place to work. Every time a technology gets shared with the open source community, Scott says, developers’ enthusiasm for acquiring a skill they could potentially use elsewhere winds up increasing use of that technology by orders of magnitude.
