PROGRAMING HELP!
« on: August 09, 2009, 10:49:43 AM »
I have been interested in electronics, mechanics, and making robots for a while now but the problem is I know next to nothing on making robots especially when it involves programming. I am currently trying to make the $50 robot from admin but I really want to learn how to do programming and even make my program for my robot one day. Don't get me wrong admins post is nothing but amazing but he only focuses on doing it not learning it. So if there is any one that knows a program or a tutorial or something like that based on learning programming please post and comment.     

Thanks!

well, there are lots of programming languages out there, and personally i think that learning to program by programming robots is hard.

if you just want to learn programming (which i recommend, it makes programming robots easier) i would point you towards zends php 101 tutorial, its on php (90% of websites you goto use php) so its useful to know anyway, but php is based on c, which is what the $50 robot is coded in, so yea

i learned php before i ever did robot programming, i think it helped me a lot

heres the tutorial:
http://devzone.zend.com/article/627

it's the best programming tutorial i've ever read, but like i said, its intended for web programming, not robot programming, but, the concepts are still there, obviously some of the stuff in it wouldn't be useful to you (i would only look at parts 1-6)

i'm sure someone else probably knows of a good c tutorial, but this is something to get you started.
use the google.  it's your friend.

http://www.cprogramming.com/
These are the two sites I use whenever I have problems writting programs for my classes.  They also have a good tutorial section and they teach you a lot of information.
Do or do not, there is no try yes I changed my picture, it is of my daughter.
