As the Internet of Things takes off, building devices that can operate in the physical world but can talk to the Web becomes an important part of the skills of the web developer.
We’ll be working with the MakeBlock mBot to understand the basics of robotics design and motion and then use that to solve some challenges or have a battle bot competition. If you want to keep on hacking we’ll have extra bits and pieces you can use to either make your bot better or experiment in other areas of JS Hardware.
Check out nodebots.io for a heap of gallery links to various projects.
Please ensure you’ve followed the pre-workshop installation notes to ensure you get the most out of the session!
