Hi @viktornord the tessel 2 can run JavaScript on it and can work without a computer but it's more expensive than an arduino
They both can work with a lot of hardware
But the arduino needs a computer hooked up to it
And the tessel 2 is basically a computer and an arduino in one
(a very small and specialized linix computer, similar to what's in a wifi router)

Thanks you, @reconbot
do you mean that I can write a program and then it can work on its own with tessel2, but with arduino I can run my program only with computer?

Yeah but for a single board computer its got a lot, most of the stuff it lacks isn't often used
