The Dronecode Project is proud to present its first developer workshop and flight day in Dublin, Ireland. This event is co-located with the Linux Foundation’s LinuxCon Europe and Embedded Linux Conference Europe.
Drone Developer Workshop
Monday, October 5th, 2pm-5:30pm.
The Spencer Hotel
Excise Walk, IFSC
This half-day Dronecode workshop will allow participants to “get their hands dirty” on the Dronecode technology stack. The workshop will cover tool chain setup (a VM/docker image will be provided), running simulated flights all the way to moving an electric servo motor on real hardware. It will also show how to develop code on Linux which sends commands to the autopilot and will provide a glimpse into how all-in-one Linux board solutions will look like. The workshop is led by Lorenz Meier, PX4 project lead and Tully Foote, platform manger for Robotic Operating System (ROS), will introduce participants to ROS.
Participants only need basic C or Python knowledge and a laptop running a POSIX system with two USB ports. Owners of a gamepad will want to bring it along for some flight simulation fun, but it is not required. Please also ensure that your power supply can be used with Ireland’s UK-style mains (230v, 50Hz). Power conversion will not be available on-site, and your laptop will need to run for 3-4 hours.
“Flight Day” is a companion event for participants to show off their UAV capabilities and flight skills, network with industry insiders and apply the knowledge they learned from the Dronecode workshop, in a safe controlled environment. Expect to solve some fun challenges and win prizes. Participants will need to bring their own UAVs, food and beverages will be provided.
Attendance at LinuxCon/ELCE is highly encouraged, but not required in order to attend the Dronecode workshop and Flight day.
The Dronecode workshop and Flight day are supported by 3DRobotics, Atlantic Bridge, Irish Development Agency, Startup Ireland, and the Linux Foundation’s Dronecode Project.
