Join us for a full week to learn online how to program robots with ROS 2.


During the **Basic ROS 2 Learning Week** you will get the foundations of ROS 2.
  • On Day 1 you will learn basic Linux concepts that are essential for ROS2 programming.
  • On Day 2 you will learn basic Python3 programming skills required to create ROS2 programs.
  • On Day 3 you will learn the basics of ROS2: how to create and compile packages, what are launch files, ROS2 nodes, etc.
  • On Day 4 you will learn about ROS2 topics, which are the basis for any ROS2 program.
  • On Day 5 you will apply everything you’ve learned to a ROS2 project based on a simulated robot.

The full week you will be practicing with simulated robots on the cloud. You will do free practice with The Construct cloud of robot simulations.


  • This intro to ROS2 is for absolute beginners.
  • You do not need to know ROS1 to attend.
  • You don’t need to install anything in your computer .
  • You do not need to know Linux to attend. You will learn it along the week
