Axon Programming Help
« on: August 23, 2009, 08:47:26 AM »
HI everyone. I am a newbie at programming. I just bought a Axon and of course I want it to do some wild things ASAP :-) BUT, I am really stupid when it comes to  programming and math. Is there a online resource or book, where I can learning programming in C for dummies from start to finish ( well from start anywho.) I have the prgramming software almost setup. Has taken a week so far ( told you I was not smart ) It's kind of confusing, but I don't give up. SOOOO, any pointers help, would be greatly appreciated.

Dennis

If you are looking for books, lots of C programming books here:
http://www.societyofrobots.com/robot_books.shtml


If you look at the source code supplied, just read the comments and you'll be able to reverse engineer it!

Don't feel bad, no one is born knowing how to make robots. We all learned by reading doing reading doing and making lots of mistakes!

Thanks, I had noticed a lot of how to PIC programming books. Are they usefull for the Axon? Same programming language?

The concepts are the same, the syntax is similar, but the hardware commands are specific to PICs only. I recommend just getting your photovore working, then see what happens when you tweak the code. When you get stuck, search the web for your problem. If you want a good grounding in theory, buy a programming book in C (not for PIC microcontrollers, just for programming). Hope that helps!

Thanks for the feedback. I do have an older Programming in C for dummies book, but it is based on programming for windows. Would that give me the basic for learning to program for robotics?

Well, it'll teach programming C, which will get you halfway there. Programming C for robots - just use SoR tutorials :P
