Full Stack Robotics

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

The Internet of Things has begun to emerge, and the Age of Robots has come upon us. What are the technologies that will help make it real? In this talk, we will share our vision of "Full Stack Robotics" based on open source software such as Cylon.js, Gobot, and more, with live demonstrations of actual robotic devices.

"Full Stack Robotics" consists of:

  • Front-ends & consists Interfaces
  • Frameworks & Tools
  • Integrations
  • Things

We will show a complete application with plenty of live demos of actual devices, along with some of the code that makes it all work. Time to get real about the Robot Evolution!
