In the Web of Things (WoT), special communication networks composed of sensor nodes, actuator nodes and service nodes form the basis for new types of web applications, which are directly connected to the real world via sensors and actuators, and can be private, such as smart home apps, personal robotics apps and factory control applications, or public, such as air pollution monitoring systems and city parking management systems.

If you want to become a great app developer, it's not sufficient that you master your favorite programming technologies. It's essential that you understand all basic concepts and techniques, not just in programming, but also in information management.

A programming (or software development) technology typically combines a programming language (such as JavaScript, Java or C#) with a framework/library for user interface and data storage programming (such as BackboneJS, JSF or ASP.NET MVC).

The concept of a class is fundamental in object-oriented programming. Objects instantiate (or are classified by) a class. A class defines the properties and methods (as a blueprint) for the objects that instantiate it. Having a class concept is essential for being able to implement a data model in the form of model classes within a Model-View-Container (MVC) architecture.

When working with embedded devices, RAM (random access memory) is one of the most valuable and limited resource of the system. The focus of this article is on the RAM usage optimization for Arduino MCUs, but the same principle applies to many other embedded devices.

The four types of basic data structures supported by JavaScript are: array lists, maps, records and JSON tables. The following list provides a summary:

  1. Array lists, such as ["one","two","three"], are special JS objects called 'arrays', but since they are dynamic, they are rather array lists as defined in the Java programming language.

  2. Maps are also special JS objects, such as {"one":1,"two":2,"three":3}, as discussed below.

In all application domains, there are enumeration datatypes that define the possible values of enumeration attributes. We show how to implement an enumeration in the form of a special JavaScript object definition using the Object.defineProperties method.
