Once upon a time I had the idea of creating a Node server to control a drone through the power of the Internet. Of course, this idea seemed crazy at the time as this was when the Internet of Things was just becoming a new buzzword. Controlling things using the Internet was a new and fascinating thing at the time. This tale (one of two) will look at how I managed to control a drone by creating and using a Node server, to fly a device from any corner of the world. This tale will dissect and investigate the node-server-ar-drone library, created by myself, at NPM.

The second tale, is a rather funny one. It takes place many years after the first tale, in an environment so bureaucratic that it leverages 8 year old technology. This second tale, is about how I sat up a Node server at the Norwegian Parliament so that I could talk to the browser's cookie monster to save and to fetch user data related to GDPR. In other words, this tale is so sensitive that it includes GDPR, the Norwegian Parliament and the all bureaucracy that follows.

Welcome to an adventurous day of tales!
