Thinking about programming

 

Before you begin to program you need to understand how a robot thinks! These Videos will help you.

   
Thinking About Programming This short informative Video explains the role of the man and the role of the machine when programming.
Planning and Behaviors Successful programmers break their programs into logical small behaviors.
Robot Decision Making This video teaches about how robots see their world. This is an important concept for a programmer to understand.
Behavior Based Programming This video teaches a very logical step-by-step method that successful programmers use as they build their programs.
