My Semi-informal Introduction
« on: May 26, 2011, 05:14:34 PM »
My Name: You don't need to know as of now.
Age: 19
Sex: Please. Nah, im j/k. Male
Job Occupation: U.S Military. Air Force to be exact. I'm a RF guy. Which means I work on anything that involves wireless communications. But at the current base I'm on now I deal exclusively with Satellite Communications.
Why I Joined This Site: I always have been interested in robotics when I was younger. I kind of grew up watching alot of cartoons involving robots, such as beast wars and transformers, to movies such as iRobot and The Terminator. I just lacked the knowledge, money, and tools to do anything. Now I have a steady job with steady income (Sort of. Don't ever get married. It'll rob you blindly. lol) and looking forward to building an advanced cybernetic system to destroy the world...


That's a joke.

Questions?...

Should I really take relationship advice from a robot forum? :)

Welcome!  Try the $50 robot if you're not sure where to start.

Already considering it. Thanks tho.
I do have a programming question that I could use an answer for. What is the most advanced universal language for robots. Or does it all just depend on the micro controller?

The closest thing to a universal language would be "C"
But it largely depends on the Micro controller
In general the universal language is binary ,  ;)
Most people on the forum will suggest you learn C
And Admin said "Let there be robots!"
And it was good.

There are literally thousands of great C tutorials on the web, just google "C tutorial" or similar.

I learnt from this one: http://www.iu.hio.no/~mark/CTutorial/CTutorial.html
and this one : http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/cclass/notes/top.html

This seems to be a good one http://einstein.drexel.edu/courses/Comp_Phys/General/C_basics/
