Labs across the US are developing robotic swarms of flying copters and tiny bots that can coordinate on their own.

Organizer Change:
After organizing the GDG Sacramento group for the past 5+ years, I am announcing that I am stepping down as an organizer. It was truly a great experience, and I have met so many great community participants. Oleg Kalugin is taking my place and Alain Chautard will help to make sure, that this greater Sacramento area technology enthusiasts community will continue to discover, learn, and do great things. Please welcome and support Oleg and Alain in their new roles.
