I'm really looking forward to the Drone Olympics, which will be held on Dec 1st at Groupon's offices in San Francisco. I'll be one of the judges. 

Here's the description of the event:

Drone Olympics is a NodeCopter-Style programming competition powered by drones and JavaScript. Hackers will receive one Parrot AR Drone 2.0 so they can work on their project. Here is one of the drones in action. The day of the event hackers will get a chance to present their work to other attendees and judges. Judges will select the winner(s).


Looking forward to meeting many of you there!

Looks like you have to be under 30 to compete.

That's really cool.  And to think I gave away my Drone 2 to my nephew.  To bad he lives in Brazil, he's a coder and he'd be all over this.

I'll be there. I'm looking forward to seeing what crazy ideas everyone comes up with.
