88. It takes a village to build a ROS robot with Sophia Kolak


Written by Ricardo Tellez


I would like to dedicate this episode to all the ROS Developers that are helping to build ROS a better framework. Not only the ones that are using ROS but the ones that are developing new packages, maintaining existing ones and adding new drivers and dependencies for new robots. If you are one of the ones that contributes to ROS, not only uses it, then this episode is dedicated to you.

But before going into that, let me remind you about our ROS online academy. Yes, at the Construct we have created an online academy named The Robot Ignite Academy which contains a ROS learning path for beginners. The path is composed by:

Some other robotics theory courses included are:

Of course all our courses are based on practice with simulated robots! (theory+practice)

Let me introduce you Sophia Kolak. Sophia is a software researcher at Carnegie Mellon university. In 2019 she presented a talk at the ROSCON 2019 entitled: It Takes a Village to Build a Robot: An Empirical Study of The ROS Ecosystem
Today she is here to talk about her paper and why it matters for all ROS Developers.
