Interviewing the Canonical team about Ubuntu and ROS

Interviewing the Canonical team about Ubuntu and ROS during the ROSCON 2019

Today we are going to talk with a couple of people that work a Canonical, you know, the company behind the development of Ubuntu.

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. We start by teaching you Linux and Python for robotics, and we continue teaching you all the basic ROS concepts required to become a master of ROS. We conclude with a course that teaches you how to build your own robot and how to ROSify it, add ROS control to it so you can finally become a ROS Developer.

So now, it is my pleasure to introduce you Jeremy Deray and Dragan Stancevic, two guys from Canonical that are attending here to the ROSCON
Jeremie is a software developer at robotics team of Canonical, ROS developer with several years experience building ROS software for humanoid robots, and Dragan is robotics security engineer at Canonical, responsive for securing ROS.

By the way, Canonical is the company behind Ubuntu!

Welcome to the podcast Jeremie and Dragan!

Selected quote

 Ubuntu has “low latency” kernel that should work for a lot of people who think they need real-time. So a lot of people probably wouldn’t need to recompile the kernel unless they would need hard real-time.

I hope that this video is useful for you and helps you avoid the mistakes that I made so you can start delivering ROS classes smoothly.
