Hi Bonpon,

You need to know VB.net or C#.net

this is MSDN site for Robotics community

http://msdn.microsoft.com/robotics/

you can downlaod the MS Robotic studio from here

http://msdn.microsoft.com/robotics/downloads/default.aspx WT.svl=1

Plus go thru the tutorials their is also on-demand video tutorials for beginners

Hope you will enjoy building robots

Hey, thanks!

I am going through tutorial now.

I was going to learn C#.net and C++.net, but the book suggest that I must know C# itself first before moving onto ".net" version. Is this correct If not, any good book that will get me right into C#.net I have taken beginner class on C++ and I am learning java now.

Thanks!

Paul

You may also want to look at the Microsoft Visual Programming Language (VPL) which is part of Microsoft Robotics Studio. VPL is a graphical language for controlling robots and much more by orchestrating flows of data between the various services in your application. You can see a short introduction at [1] and try it out by downloading the studio.

Just as a clarification, VB.Net and C# are both integral parts of .Net and do not exist outside the .Net environment. C++ can be used within .Net as so-called "Managed C++" but I wouldn't recommend that as a path to getting started.

Yeah, that is what I am kind of confused. So DSS and CCR can be both programmed using C#.net and VPL So VPL and C#.net is actually two separate language I thought VPL is somesort of graphic interface that allow user to create a program and it would "spit" out C#.net code.

I am going through VPL tutorial now, and I found it to be extremely helpful.

Thanks,

Paul
