NodeBots at Scale - Matteo Collina, nearForm

The NodeBots movement aims to help everybody control robots with Node, but all the examples online focus on controlling a single machine. At NodeConf.eu we built 4 robots that were able to serve 134 cocktails in 1 hour and a half. They were all wifi controlled and we are able to order drinks from our smartphones. In the process, we fried 2 Raspberry Pi2, fried 4 transistors, burned two fingers, live deployed bug-fixes but ultimately made four robots that could serve 2 drinks each. For this scaled-up prototype, we used Johnny-Five, MQTT.js, some other popular JS libraries (express, socket.io, and many others), we open sourced all our code and our blueprints, so you can build one yourself! This is the story of this journey, from inception to the event.
