Description

What you’ll learn

  • Master ROS actions
  • Use the SimpleActionServer, SimpleActionClient, ActionServer and ActionClient classes
  • Create more complex robotics applications
  • Get more practice on ROS with Object Oriented Programming
  • Unleash the potential of ROS communication
  • And even more ROS best practices

Learning ROS is hard… But you’ve made it. You have some good basics about ROS nodes, topics, services, … This is a pretty good start. And you want to take your skills to the next level.

Or you’re already in the process of learning ROS actions, but you have some real trouble finding documentation and tutorials online.

A great ROS developer must know about ROS actions, and must be able to use them efficiently when required. Topics, Services and Actions are the 3 communication tools that will allow you to create any complex robotic application.

Warning !!! Before continuing, I want to be sure you understand that this course is not a course for total ROS beginners. You have to get some ROS basics first if you want to be able to follow the pace of this course.

Also, this course targets the first version of ROS, or ROS1. This is not a ROS2 course.

→ Why this course ?

When I first started with ROS actions, my progress was really, really slow. I didn’t find any structured resource or tutorial to go beyond the very basic stuff. It took me a very long time (several months) to finally have a clear understanding.

This course is the course that I wish I had when I started. Practical and to the point. Showing you directly how things work, how you can quickly start and build more more complex applications.

→  Now, why should you choose my course ?

In the past I have developed a complete ROS software for an entire 6 axis robotic arm. I’m telling you that, because by developing this robot, I learned (the hard way) what I really needed to know to build things that actually work.

My experience with Robot Operating System is not only about university work or a weekend hobby : I actually co-founded a business with a robot powered by ROS. By doing so, I had to focus on going to the point, finding what is useful, and what is not.

So today, with the practical vision that I’ve developed, I know exactly what you need to learn at the beginning if you want to get serious about building more complex robotic applications.

And getting serious means mastering ROS actions. One day or another, you’ll need to use them or else you’ll be stuck.

→ What is this course about

This course is a complete course about ROS actions. I’ll show you each part of the process, step by step, and explain all the code that I write.

In the first part of the course, you’ll start using ROS actions with the SimpleActionServer and SimpleActionClient classes. Those parts will let you understand the key concepts behind ROS actions.

The second part is focused on using ActionServer and ActionClient classes. Those are more difficult to understand but allow you to create far more complex applications. You will learn how to handle multiple goals, how to change the server goal policy, how to put goals in a queue, etc.

During the course, you will practice through activities and challenges. Practicing is the key if you want to learn efficiently.

I will mostly use Object Oriented Programming. That’s a great opportunity for you to improve your OOP skills, which is really working well with ROS. Also, all the code will be written in both Python and C++ !

So… Don’t wait too much and enroll in this course to go to the next level of ROS!

During the course I will also give you all the best practices that I know when developing with the Robot Operating System. So that’s another opportunity to get some practical insights that will help you develop better and more complex robotics applications.

Who this course is for:

  • Students who have learned ROS basics and want to go further
  • ROS developers who want to take their skill to the next level
  • And anyone desperately searching for documentation on ROS actions without finding something useful

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
