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: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/3d-robotics
The recorded videos will be on our YouTube channel after the event: https://www.youtube.com/user/3DRobotics

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).

  • Mike,

    I'm not sure where they put the videos. I'm sure John cherbini or Chris can point you in the right direction, though.

  • I can't find the videos at the provided link. Can someone show me where they are?

  • Developer

    Really nice event, nice people, good luck to all the 3DRobotics Team!

  • Ustream wants to access everything about me from Twitter or Facebook in order to leave a chat. No thanks...

    Someone take that marker away from Chris. He is digging a hole in his leg with it...  :-)

    Frank, open talk though.  Brave.

  • Hey folks,

    This is a reminder, we will be broadcasting this event starting at 10am mountain time tomorrow June 8.

  • Allen, I don't think so, but send me a PM with your phone #, I'll touch base with you in the morning and see what I can do.

  • OK understood. We are at Days Inn at Exit 240 on I-25. Gonna get a good nights sleep.


  • Any seats left?  If so I would like to attend.


  • Earl, Drone Con is at Sparkfun HQ on Longboew
    AVC is at the reservoir.
  • Longboew Drive or 1 Reservoir Dr. ?? I thought Sparkfun moved to the Reservoir.
