⚡️Final Call for Participation: ROS Developers Day 2021 Conference - June 19


Dear ROS Developers,

We would like to invite you to participate in the ROSDevDay 2021 full-day virtual conference which will be held on 2021-06-19T05:00:00Z2021-06-19T17:30:00Z.

ROS Developers Day is the only practice-based conference about robot programming with ROS in the world. Unlike the normal slideshow-type conference, this is a hands-on event with a focus on practice. Every attendee will program the robot and reproduce the ROS projects’ results together in real-time while following the speakers’ demonstrations.

Hi @YUHONG_LIN

The program looks very interesting! If you register, do you have to participate in everything live or will you get the rosjects and recordings of every session afterwards? Of course you miss out on the live interaction and questions, but is there anything else that is only available during the live session and is there anything that is time-limited?
It might be hard to set a side 12 hours on a saturday :slight_smile:

Hi @Kasper_Jeppesen
Yes, you will get all the recordings and ROSJECTS after the conference.

But we still recommend that you attend the live event. You will not only be able to ask questions, but most importantly, you will be able to follow the guidance of each speaker in real time to run ROSJECT’s code & robots for practice. This is a “live concert” of ROS that you can participate in. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for the answer. I’ll make the attempt, but I wonder how well I will be able to follow Steve’s session at 7AM saturday morning :smiley:

Hey! This is only for the brave!
12 hours of ROS practice! That is hard! Are you ready for it?

This is not about listening to a speaker talk and talk. It is about practicing ROS following the speaker explanations.

On top of that, we are going to have a lot of fun and camaraderie… during the difficult moments is when the bounds between the community strengthen…
