Using Ubuntu, Python, an Iris, and some elbow grease, IIT students set out to turn a hobby quadcopter into a logistics platform. Many crashes and some interesting solutions later a successful delivery platform is born, but it doesn't stop there. Information Technology and Management undergraduate student Mark Milhouse will discuss the failures, successes, hopes and fears of a scrappy team of techs, hellbent on delivering your pizza, no matter the cost.
After the meeting we generally adjourn to Cozymel's around the corner from IIT for a more informal get together and discussion.
Mark Milhouse is a current student of IIT. Professionally, Mark is an IT systems engineer. Personally he is an enthusiast in the practical applications of open source software.
