    I thought of an interesting example of Arduino-gone-commercial: the ArduPilot.

    http://store.diydrones.com/APM_2_5_Assembled_p/br-apmpwrkt.htm

    It's a controller for creating autonomous aerial vehicles which has grown out of the DIY Drone community.

    Thanks for the project feedback. Chatted with John for a few minutes at the end and discussed the idea of breaking the output into some groups, perhaps based on the project hierarchy. That would work well with the idea of a net-accessible version as Russ and Charles brought up.

    Great presentation! Just seems so cool to write JS that controls a physical thing rather than an experience. Thanks.

    We have a shiny new mailing list to go along with our Twitter account - http://mail.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/salem-pm -- please subscribe.

    (The Perl oriented nature of the list will be explained at the meeting... 8^D )

    Interesting article to discuss if there is extra time, or next month: http://rubiken.com/blog/2013/02/11/web-dev-a-crazy-world.html

      Sounds like an interesting conversation starter to me to me! I believe it to be related to Chris Dixon's take on where we stand in the tech timeline: http://cdixon.org/201...­

    I made a Twitter account for the group -- https://twitter.com/sodlug -- so if you're a Twitterer, give us a follow. Future meeting announcements & such will go out via that account. Looking forward to seeing y'all tomorrow night and maybe meeting one or two new people... 8^)

    If anybody is interested, I've got a recruiter emailing me about a CF -> ASP.net conversion project in Salem. If you want details, let me know, I can bring them to the meeting or email you or whatever.

    That'd be me! I'll be giving an introduction to Spacebrew using Arduinos and Node.js. Maybe a little short overview of the Johnny-Five library. Basically a "here's the minimum toolchain for creating making Node talk to the outside world."

    I'm going to talk about my Python/JS project, "Crutches", which aims to revolutionize cheat sheets. (Well, improve them at least.)

      Thanks! Sorry I blanked on the topic... 8^)
