Transcript of Scala for drones

Scala for drones
Why scala?
Android is JVMish
Java is primitive - only so much you can fix with IDE wizard hell
Cross platform (much of this GCS is reused in in www.droneshare.com)
What tool: android-sdk-plugin
Questions & Demo
Let's talk...

The code is available, popular and I'd love to have collaborators:
github.com/geeksville/arduleader
github.com/geeksville/droneshare
http://fxthomas.github.io/android-plugin/

play.google.com: Andropilot
groups.google.com: scala-on-android

How
Actors (MockAkka)
Mavlink (USB/Bluetooth/UDP/TCP)
Model
Views (scandroid - but there are better options)
Flurry for analytics
BugSense for bug reporting
Why drones?
HW is fun!
Flying is fun!
Nice community (friendly dev group and diydrones.com)
Ground control stations (GCS) were not mobile, not Linux and not accessible.
Show and tell (quads or planes)
