UAVs meet Node.js – NodeCopter comes to Southampton on 10 Aug

nodecopterlogoI have always been a fan of autonomous flying machines, particular their civilian applications, and through my past work at the University I have been fortunate to be able to work on the design and building of UAVs. I have also been a keen attender of various meetups and hackathons .

I was therefore immediately sold when I heard about the Node Copter concept: getting together and see what you can make a Parrot AR Drone do by the end of the day using node.js. Best explained by video:

I got in touch with Benjie (from So Make It) and Andy Nesbitt (who has run a number of these) asking them if they were interested in helping organize one in Southampton.

Both responded with a “hell yeah!” and after some prep Im happy to announce that you can should sign up on the Eventbrite page:

Eventbrite - Nodecopter Southampton

The event will be held at the makerspace itself. There is a small attendance charge to avoid people signing up but not turning up.

Some prior coding experience (in whatever language) is required.

See you there!
