World MoveIt! Day 2017 - October 18th!

From Dave Coleman


We're excited to announce that this year's World MoveIt! Day will be Wednesday October 18th! The event is a day long international hackathon to improve the MoveIt! code base, documentation, and community. We hope to close as many pull requests and issues as possible and explore new areas of features and improvements for the now five year old framework.

We will be having many event locations including:

  • Verb Surgical, San Francisco Bay Area
  • Magazino, Munich, Germany
  • Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, USA
  • Xamla Robotics (PROVISIO GmbH), M√ľnster, Germany
  • ROS-Industrial Asian Pacific Consortium, Singapore (THURSDAY OCTOBER 19th)
  • PickNik Robotics (Univ. Colorado), Boulder, USA
  • Shadow Robot Company, London, UK

You are encouraged to have your own event in your lab/organization/company and video conference in to all the other events.

For more details, see the event page.

ROSCon 2017: Video recordings of presentations are available

We're happy to announce that the videos from ROSCon 2017 have been uploaded and are now linked from the program, thanks to the support of our video-archiving sponsor Ubuntu. If you were unable to attend, missed a talk, or want to listen again to get some more details now you can.

In addition we have posted slides from almost all the speakers as well. So if you want to get a link or other information you can do so now as well. The slides are linked alongside the videos from the program.

If you presented a Lightning Talk and want to provide more information, or if you were unable to secure a lightning talk slot I encourage you to make your announcement on Discourse in the ROS Projects category. If you're announcing a released ROS package send it to the General category. That way, more of the community will be aware of your projects and package contributions.

Thanks to everyone for coming and for your support! We sold out ROSCon for the third year in a row, with over 475 attendees. And thank you to our record-breaking 33 sponsors for the financial support that enabled the conference to grow!
