Workshop on teaching ROS during ROSCON/IROS in Vancouver

Dear all,

at The Construct, we thought that we could share our experience in teaching ROS with all the attendants to the ROSCON or IROS. For that, we created a half-day workshop on the Saturday after ROSCON (between ROSCON and IROS) to show how anybody can implement our teaching method based on heavy constructionism (learning by doing).

The workshop is free and will be done at the same location of the two conferences.

Is it acceptable to leave the workshop early? I’d like to attend but I have to be at the airport shortly after 1pm.

Sure, you can! What can we do if you have to catch a flight :wink:

I signed up and went through the Paypal payment, and then I got dumped back at your homepage. I’m assuming the registration worked, but I think you should add a confirmation page to give people more confidence. :slight_smile:

We were confirming by email, but I think your idea is better. Thank you Geoffrey
