Learning Curve

I'm slowly studying Visual C# and playing around with Microsoft Robotics.
I got the M.R. working with my Logitech remote and hope to get more working soon.
I'm going to order the Phidgets 4 Servo controller this weekend and see if I can
get the M.R. to control the servos through the Phidget.
If all goes well, Hopefully oneday R2 will run on his onboard computer.

Oh yeah..I forgot to reply to this...

C# or C+? What is the difference? I got a bunch of book on it a few years back but never read them. I wanted to get into game design. Then we got another dog..then married then the family started so I gave up on that.

Sounds like a great thing to learn regardless!! Good luck man!!

I really don't know the difference between the C's. I can only guess it's the level of experience.
There's C, C#, C+, C++.
I wish you were studying C#, So you can teach me :o)
Vex works off of C basic, But Easy C is just a graphic style setup for beginners like me.
I'm learning so much more that C# can do than I imagined.
We could program R2 to follow us around or have him drive by voice.
I've just got to learn C#.
