This is one of those “must reads” that all software developers should have on their bookshelf. I had an opportunity to see Uncle Bob speak a few years ago, and it was very memorable. This sess...

It responds by sending the commands to the Parrot AR.Drone based on the thought patterns. I developed components and libraries that work with these two devices, and then the bulk of the application itself I put toge...
