Full talk descriptions: Bluetooth for Web Developers: programming flying robots with JavaScript

Smart watches, wireless earphones, even flying robots... the availability of Bluetooth Low Energy in our smartphones is driving a 'connected devices' revolution. Thankfully, we can use our favourite language JavaScript to jump on board, using technologies like React Native, Cordova and the all-new Web Bluetooth API. I'll share how to use Bluetooth to start controlling the real world around us. You'll have a JavaScript-programmable drone at your disposal in no time!
