Presentation: Flow-Based Programming for JavaScript

Track: Visual Programming & Data Visualization / Time: Friday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Hall 5

NoFlo is a flow-based programming environment for JavaScript. Originally built for Node.js systems automation, it can also be used for developing full-stack applications from the browser to microcontrollers like Arduino.

With NoFlo developers build their applications by wiring data streams together between different pre-built or custom components. The NoFlo environment is fully browser-based and can connect to NoFlo instances running on remote servers, allowing inspection and rewiring of running software.

The NoFlo development environment is open source and was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter in fall 2013. Now it is time to show the world how it works.
