As some of you might remember, we got one of the very first TurtleBot 2s from Clearpath Robotics. It was awesome. We were going to put together a big long series of tutorials and stuff, and we got started by explaining how to install Ubuntu and ROS, even if you know as little about either of those things as we did.
But, as awesome as it was to get a very early TurtleBot 2, we ran into a few bugs that made things like networking and navigating abnormally difficult, and to be completely honest with you, we got stuck. Since then, the TurtleBot software has matured significantly, and from the sound of things, getting your little robot to actually, you know, do stuff is way easier than it used to be.
Mark Silliman, Austin Meyers, and Melissa Eaton have posted an excellent set of beginner TurtleBot tutorials, starting from scratch and ending with (hopefully) your TurtleBot bringing you coffee that you can order with an app on your phone.
