Rick Waldron

Director of Reliability, Standards & Test Engineering

Rick is the creator of Johnny-Five, a JavaScript framework for hardware programming on the Node.js platform and is working towards establishing standards for general hardware APIs. With a growing body of platform support, Johnny-Five is working towards becoming the defacto standard for hardware programming with javaScript.
