BCS Berkshire February Event – Quadricopters and Nodecopters

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No it’s a Nodecopter!

Quadricopters and Nodecopters – 18th February 7.30-9.30pm

In the hassle and activity of everyday life in the IT industry, do you ever wonder why you got involved in the first place? This event will remind you how much fun, and learning, there can be in thinking up new ideas and solutions. Nodecopter events are one day hackathons organised around developing apps to control a quadricopter (AR Drone 2.0) with an opensource, easy to use, javscript based interface. Andrew Nesbitt will talk about the technical platform that makes this possible and the kind of apps people have developed (which include teaching the ‘copter to run at a red flag!), complete with a demo of the kind of tricks you can get the ‘copter to perform.
