John 'Warthog9' Hawley
was the boss sysadmin on kernel.org
before he jumped to Intel in April, 2014, as an open hardware technical evangelist. He last showed up on Slashdot in June, 2014, with his Dr. Who-inspired Robot K-9
. Now he's talking about flight computers for quadcopters, specifically ones based on MinnowBoards
. Last month (April 2015) he was speaking at the Embedded Linux Conference + Android Builders Summit
. That's where he and Timothy Lord had this conversation about flight controllers for UAVs, which makes it a fitting sequel to yesterday's video
, which was also about controlling drones with real-time Linux.
