codebender.cc brings Arduino programming on the cloud

Cloud 2

M4rkellos writes "A group of 5 students from Greece have developed [url="http://codebender.cc"]codebender[/url], an open-source web-based platform for hackers and makers, in an attempt to make Arduino and electronics development more accessible to people that have no previous experience with hardware and programming.

Codebender eliminates the problems a first-time Arduino user faces, such as the hassle of installing, managing and updating software, tools and [url="http://codebender.cc/libraries"]external libraries[/url], and keeping them in sync across multiple devices. Having a web-based IDE also means that all your projects are safely stored on the cloud making them available 24/7 and enabling you to program your Arduino even if you are away from your computer. You can even [url="http://codebender.cc/misc/about"]program an internet-enabled Arduino remotely[/url] through the network, straight from the browser.

codebender’s goal is to help the maker community, so the team behind codebender is determined to keep the service free of charge and open to everyone. To cover their hosting fees, [url="http://www.indiegogo.com/codebender?a=806420"]they ask for support through their IndieGoGo campaign[/url] in order to keep the site running."

Amazing attempt (1)

A really amazing and promising attempt. Best of luck mates. :)

The arduino is built on a way cool set of parts. (1)

The Arduino family is built on a way cool set/ family of parts.
Low power, good clock speeds, rich features and
easy to expand...

Compilers work.. but the tools, libs and such are well scattered and
almost difficult to collect on one machine. Sounds like a worthy
project...

Best of luck.... If this works at all your resume should find a
fine home.....

Oh wait this is /. I need to say something snarky...
  snark snark snark...
