On March 11, 2022, Instantiations hosted an in-person presentation and tech demo at an event organized by the Internet of Things (IoT) organization, RIoT. RIoT's event, Developer Day 2022, took place at Wake Technical Community College's RTP campus.

Developer Day gave Instantiations the opportunity to talk about how the IoT development experience could be better by using higher level programming languages, for example, languages like VAST and Toit. Our session was aptly titled: Taking IoT Programming to a Higher Level.

Since we've previously spoken to audiences at RIoT events about the VAST Platform, we shifted the focus for this presentation to mostly be about a language purpose-built for IoT and microcontrollers: Toit.

We were joined by Toit's Co-Founder & CEO, Kasper Lund, who shared some insights into the creation of Toit and how Toit and Instantiations share a common goal of improving the software development experience for IoT systems. To learn more about Toit, check our recent post on it.

Developer Day 2022 was a great event, and we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to introduce VAST and Toit to a whole new audience!

Event Description

Join Instantiations and their guest, Toit, as they discuss the need for more productive, higher-level programming experiences for IoT systems. Get first-hand experience with Toit’s object-oriented programming language that’s specifically designed for IoT, and participate in a hands-on demo of this tech with provided ESP32 dev boards and access to Toit’s cloud-based device management platform.
