So, I am thinking of applying for the ROS Summer School 2017 - https://www.fh-aachen.de/fachbereiche/maschinenbau-und-mechatronik/international/ros/

Has anyone here attended the course, is it worth it (to me it looks like it) - any pointers / suggestions / alternatives ???

I haven't but I'm thinking in going this year too, although it is kind of difficult for me because I'm located in the USA. For me, it is worth it for the following reasons:

  • Networking
  • 500 euros of scholarship
  • Hands on a real robot using ROS
  • Sort of vacations
  • Participation at Urban Challenge Competition
  • CV?

Other than that it seems to me that the program is too basic and you can learn that stuff by yourself and for free.
