Drone Con 2013:

3D Robotics is proud to sponsor a day full of talks by people who know drones

We've gathered a high caliber group of developers and operators -- from a variety of specialties -- all related to autonomous vehicle control and applications.
They will each be giving a short talk on a dense subject, hosted in a small and informal space.
All of this knowledge will be streamed live and recorded for posterity, so don't feel bad if you can't make it out to Boulder. You are all invited to attend at your convenience -- in person or virtually.
The live video will be streamed at:
The recorded videos will be on our YouTube channel after the event:

We have five open spaces left in the audience! If you are interested in attending, please respond to this post, in the comments below, and we will hook you up (first five people to respond).

I would be interested to get some opinions on live streaming hosts, does anyone have any recommendations?

Also, if there is anybody in the area who could offer some photo or video skills, we would love to have an extra camera or two in the mix! Let me know if you care to be part of our media crew.

Is  possible to see the event live  ? There is a webcasting or recording ?

Comment by Gerard Toonstra on June 3, 2013 at 3:45pm

A 50min video of the event afterwards is appreciated. The rest: too short notice.

Comment by Christopher Roberts on June 3, 2013 at 3:50pm

It would be great to watch this online at a later date.

Comment by Joshua Ott on June 3, 2013 at 3:51pm

This was announced some time ago, and it filled up quickly. Apologies for not giving more updates on the lead up. We are definitely going to be recording tons of video and streaming the talks live.

AVC will be well covered also!

As I said above, if anyone has recommendations on good streaming hosts, please share them. Thanks!

Wayne, I know it's not a drone, but it's majestic and nerdy, please allow me the artistic license.
