Coming Up At ICRA 2010: Tutorial on ROS
UPDATE: this tutorial is now full and registration is closed.
As we mentioned a while back, a group of ROS experts will be teaching a full-day ROS tutorial on May 7. The event, "Tutorial on ROS: from nodes and messages to sensing, planning, and control", will be taught by Brian Gerkey, Gary Bradski, Ken Conley, Eitan Marder-Eppstein, Morgan Quigley, and Melonee Wise. Participants will use existing ROS software libraries, while also learning to write new code. You'll get a hands-on opportunity to work on the PR2, as well as in simulation.
Attendees should be comfortable writing Python code, though need not be experts. Familiarity with ROS is encouraged but not required.
If you'd like to participate, please sign up for workshops when you register for the conference. In addition, please be sure to email Bianca at sotob (at) willowgarage (dot) com, letting her know that you'll be in attendance. Please visit our ROS Tutorial website and closely follow the "Required Setup" instructions to set up your laptop before the tutorial.
This full-day workshop will take place on Friday, May 7 (9:00 am-12:30 pm and 2:00 pm-5:30 pm) in Egan Center, La Perouse Hall.
