Flying a drone with React and Node.js, pt. 1

About this video

Join web developer, instructor, and YouTuber Wes Bos as he takes on the IBM Developer Drone Challenge. In part one of this two-part video, Wes digs into the hardware, documentation, and required programming. After that, he rolls up his sleeves and gets coding. Work along with Wes as he prepares his drone to respond to his coded commands. He walks you through the JavaScript, shows you how he pipes in his data, and then it’s seatbelts on and time to get ready for take-off! And flips! And (hopefully) a smooth landing!
