March Monthly Meeting (March 14th at Noon) – Getting Started with ROS

Paul Bouchier has agreed to provide a tutorial on ROS. He will be basing his talk around the free ebook, "A gentle introduction to ROS", available on the web at http://www.cse.sc.edu/~jokane/agitr/ and in hardcopy from Lulu.com. Paul claims that this book provides "the easiest way to get from 0 to 20mph". Paul also plans to demonstrate a ROS based robot at the meeting. If you been wondering about ROS, this might be your chance to get started.
