• NodeBots of London: Assemble!
    NodeBots of London is a semi regular meetup to hack on hardware using JavaScript. We'll build robots, fly node copters and perhaps inadvertently kickstart the robot apocalypse. Lunch will be provided, please specify in the RSVP form if you have any dietary requirements. What should I bring? 1. A laptop. Please install the latest versions of node (http://nodejs.org/), git (http://git-scm.com/) and johnny-five (https://github.com/rwaldron/johnny-five/). If you are running Windows, please install Visual Studio (http://www.visualstudio.com/) as well. 2. Some hardware to hack on. If you are a beginner the Oomlout Starter Kit For Arduino (ARDX) (http://oomlout.co.uk/products/arduino-starter-kit-ardx) is a good place to start - if they are out of stock any Arduino Starter kit (https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=arduino+starter+kit) from Amazon will do. If you've got the basics down and are looking for a challenge, the NodeBots of London Esoteric Hardware Library (https://github.com/tableflip/nodebots-library) is a veritable treasure trove of electronics for you to experiment with. I'm too excited, I can't wait that long! Sharpen your robotic coding skills in advance with the nodebot-workshop (https://libraries.io/npm/nodebot-workshop) - no hardware required! I've got a question! Post in the comments below or send smoke signals to @NodeBotsUK (https://twitter.com/NodeBotsUK) if you've misplaced your soldering iron or get lost on the way. I'd like to sponsor you That's fantastic, please get in touch!

Lunch will be provided, please specify in the RSVP form if you have any dietary requirements. Workshop This month we are doing a Learn to Solder workshop! You'll build musical instruments while learning the basics of through-hole soldering. At the end of the day we'll have a robot band ready to storm the charts. Soldering irons are provided but once you have RSVP'd to the meetup please pick up a kit (https://ti.to/robot-logic/nodebots-of-london-februrary-2016) to take part in the workshop. Places are limited so get in quick! What can I do to get ready?

  • NodeBot Battle Royale Round 1 - Sumo Challange
    February sees round 1 of the NodeBot Battle Royal 2015 (http://london.nodebots.io)! What is it? NodeBot Battle Royal is a six month long festival of robot building. Every month a new challenge will be issued along with a reference kit that will allow even absolute beginners to compete. The reference kit will most likely not win! Extra materials will be available on the day to enhance and customise the kit to make it more competitive. See the NodeBots of London (http://london.nodebots.io/) site for full information and competition rules. Who can enter? Anyone who would normally come to a NodeBots will be more than capable of entering the Battle Royale - from complete beginners to seasoned pros. A basic grasp of JavaScript is recommended however. Teams will be formed either in advance or on the day. Don't worry if you are on your own, you can join a team or go solo. How do I enter? Accept the meetup invitation as per usual, and if required, purchase a reference kit (https://ti.to/tableflip/nodebot-battle-royale-2015-1-sumobots). I don't need a reference kit! Great. If you have a robot ready to go it must meet the entry criteria (http://london.nodebots.io/challenge-1-sumobots.html#criteria) to compete. I just want to hack on things Don't worry, normal NodeBots activities will continue as normal. Beginner workshops, accidental laser eye surgery and slightly nervous programming while quadcopters buzz around people's heads will all be available on the day.
