Desiging programs
« on: January 14, 2012, 05:16:33 PM »
Hello, I am trying to get into robotics & programming I belive the recommed way is to use flowcharts and writing the pseudocode first before implementation. I was wondering if any one knows where I can download a good flowchart or pseudocode program & CAD(electronic circuits) & simulator, for linux.
I don't know which language to use but C++ appears to be the most popular please could anybody help I tryed searching

On the topic of flow charts, there's some recommendations in this recent thread:

I find that the stuff I do for robot code is simple enough that I can either keep track of it in my head, or write out the flow charts on paper.

Eagle is a circuit design program that's free for what you'll need.  I'm pretty sure it's linux compatible but too lazy to check :)

Have you looked at the $50 robot tutorial? It's a good place to start. :)
