Raspberry pi was just one example. When you publish code via the IDE today it’s being “hosted” by someone (SmartThings). We need to stop looking at this through the lenses of how this worked in the past. For the non-coders, we are trying to build a platform that does not force you to use code. For the developers we are trying to build a platform that will allow you reach more people in a published and controlled way without needing to pass around the source code.
And lastly, No. We aren’t throwing anything in the bin overnight. There is going to be a long transition period before all of the new stuff is even fully in “production”. Then there will be some time while we main both the new system and legacy systems.
