Programming a Robot – an Introductory Tutorial

By now, I’m sure you have looked at all of the cool robotics-related content on my website, and you are inspired and want to start programming your own robots right now! If you’re totally new to programming, you may be wondering, “how do I get to the level of programming in the Timmyton or Plethora II?” You may not even know where to start!

Well, I have found an excellent tutorial that will get you started with programming your first robots. It first goes over the basic concepts of robot programming and then walks you step-by-step through building your very first programs. (The programming is done in Python, but you can easily apply the concepts they discuss to work with the EV3).

Here is the tutorial: https://www.toptal.com/robotics/programming-a-robot-an-introductory-tutorial

This tutorial is on a website called Toptal, which serves as a network of the top web developers and designers in the world. They also have a publication that shares the knowledge and skills that their top engineers and designers have, which is where you can find more tutorials like the one above.
