Have you ever wanted to code a drone? During the Winter Olympics in Seoul, Intel launched over 1200 drones into the sky for the opening ceremony. These drones created incredible displays now known as digital fireworks. Every drone needed to be coded to synchronise in perfect unison. How would you like to experience coding a drone and learn the skills to become a digital firework expert? During this masterclass you will use the Swift programming language to code Mambo drones. You will code the drone to use the camera, pinchers and canon to produce some incredible flights. You will also code some land based robots in Swift, such as Sphero and Dash. This will be a fun filled day of coding machines to perform some amazing feats. If you have an iPad, please bring this along with Swift Playgrounds app installed.
