Welcome to my blog’s version of the #IDevThis project that will be coming out. This full series will be made available on instructables and channel9 once it has been completed as a full unit.
Pi for Brains Robot (aka Danger-Bot)
These days it seems like I’m always dealing with a robot, they are on the phone, in my car, at the grocery store, just about everywhere. It also seems like every single one of them had Pie for brains, because it just couldn’t do what I told it to. This project is going to build a robot that ACTUALLY has PI for brains! Get out your breadboards, your Raspberry Pis and follow along. We will use a high performance cross platform robotics framework, Cylon, Raspberry Pi, and an Arduino Robotics Kit to build this internet connected robot.
One of my good friends is going through a reskill to become a software developer, so I have decided to help him out, because, isn’t that really my job? Help everybody be successful with programming? Anyways, this has provided some new insight into challenges people face learning to code that you just don’t remember as a seasoned developer. Anyways, he was working through some code and sent me his code to look over. I want to go over both code bases and why I chose to change even code as simple as that to what it has become. The code written derives from the Microsoft Virtual Academy Intro to C# series, located here.
