A Droid's Journey - RubyKaigi 2018

Joint talk with @code0100fun

Intro here: https://dee-too-intro.herokuapp.com/

Ruby has never been at the forefront of dealing with robots, IoT, or other low level systems. What Ruby is great at is scripting and building DSLs. Using mruby we can leverage existing ecosystems while still using the language we love.

In this talk, we'll deep dive into how we can execute mruby handlers inside a Go event reactor to control a Sphero R2-D2. With surprisingly few lines of code, you can coordinate motors, lights, and sound concurrently. Come learn about mruby & robotics and see the Droids™ you're looking for in action.
