How PyCon inspired me to write a book on Robotics and Python
Qbotics Labs (~qbotics) |
In this talk i like to present my journey of writing a book called Learning Robotics using Python. I was a speaker in PyCon 2013 and i have been taken a session on Application of Python in Robotics. After this talk i got good response from the audience as well as the online robotics community.
One of the important opportunity that i got was an invitation to write a book for PACKT publishers. I have accepted it and started writing in November 2013 and i could release the book in May 29th 2015. Also I could launch the book along with the biggest robotic conference called ICRA 2015. The book named Learning Robotics using Python teaches you to design, simulate, program, and prototype an interactive autonomous mobile robot from scratch with the help of Python, ROS, and Open-CV.
I like to discuss my journey of book writing and the importance of PyCon also like to discuss an abstract of the content on my book.

He authored a book called Learning Robotics using Python recently published by PACKT. He is basically an Electronics Engineer and having work experience about 3 years in Robotics Technologies. In 2014, he started his own company called Qbotics Labs. In PyCon 2013, he took a session on Application of python in Robotics and got good response from audience. He presented several sessions in other Python meetups,also took several workshops in these area. As a robotics enthusatist, he wrote lot of tutorials online, contributed to some IEEE papers and now mainly focussing into bootstrapping his new company. The current focus of the company is into autonomous robotics navigation using ROS. He reached in an international robotic challenge recently conducted as part of ICRA 2015, biggest robotics challenge in the world.
