Microsoft Robotics team has now released a collection of on-demand video tutorials that supplement those included with MSRS V1.0 release. This training material is now available from http://msdn.microsoft.com/robotics/learn/On_Demand/default.aspx

 

Here’s a summary of what’s included:

 

Architecture Overview

This session covers in depth the underlying Microsoft Robotics Studio services-oriented runtime architecture.

 

Visual Programming Language (VPL) 1

This session covers the Microsoft Visual Programming Language, an application development environment designed on a graphical dataflow-based programming model rather than control flow typically found in conventional programming.

 

Visual Programming Language (VPL) 2

This session builds on VPL1 and features more advanced examples of using VPL.

 

Microsoft Robotics Studio- Simulation

This session provides an introduction to the simulation runtime, a 3-D tool that simulates robotics applications in physics-based virtual environments, using the licensed PhysX™ engine from AGEIA™ Technologies Inc.

 

Microsoft Robotics Studio- Robotics Tutorials

This session, based on the robotics tutorials included with Microsoft Robotics Studio, will show how to create a service and coordinate between services. It will also provide an overview of manifests, contracts used to specify robotics hardware.

 

Microsoft Robotics Studio- Services Tutorials

This session, based on the services tutorials included with Microsoft Robotic Studio, will provide an overview of how to create a service, update the state of a service and persist the state of a service.

 

Microsoft Robotics Studio- Controlling Simulated Robots Using VB.NET

This session will provide an overview on working with Microsoft Robotics Studio using Visual Basic .NET.

 

Microsoft Robotics Studio- Controlling Simulated Robots Using Iron Python

This session will provide an overview on working with Microsoft Robotics Studio using Iron Python.
