Starting the first week of November, Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy will begin offering their second series of "Learning ROBOTC" Webinars!
The Academy will host 5 weekly webinar training sessions for ROBOTC enthusiasts of all levels and platforms. The ROBOTC webinars are designed for anyone interested in learning more about ROBOTC, from the absolute beginner to the advanced programmer.
All webinars are free of charge and include a forum where participants can get questions answered before, during and after the session. Webinars will be recorded for those who cannot attend and the forums will be monitored daily to answer questions.
Registration is required. To learn more about the available sessions or to register, click here.
