Ricardo Téllez via ros-users@

The Barcelona ROS (Robot Operating System) Summer Course will start in 2 weeks. This is the final call.


  • A single week of basic ROS learning in Barcelona. These courses are available for students and teachers with no previous knowledge of ROS. 100% practical since minute one.

  • Dates: 5th to 10th of September

  • Morning (from 9:30 to 13:30): teaching by doing exercises. Teaching is 100% practical. Students must complete several exercises along with the teachers' explanations of different subjects.

  • Afternoon (from 14:30 to 16:30): working on a ROS project. Students are presented with a project they have to solve by the end of the week working by themselves in the afternoons, with the support of the teachers.

  • Exam and ROS Certification: There will be a test at the end of the course. Those who pass the test with at least 8 out of 10 will receive a ROS certification.

  • Spots Still Available: due to the high demand of the course, we increased the number of seats to 13. There only remain 3 free spots.
