All the materials of the summer school are made publicly available on the project's GitHub repository, including the lecture slides and tutorials. These tutorials serve as an excellent starting point for anybody who is keen to use the software developed (usually ROS components) by the STRANDS project, which is all easily accessible, released as Ubuntu binary packages for installation within minutes. The consortium is very proud that 25 excellent early-career researchers were able to develop their own robotic systems with the software and tutorials provided in just four days of programming - from concept all the way to a robustly working system.
A lot of this excitement is shared by the participants, indicated in their shared their experience on Twitter and in their feedback:
...The fact that we could use the robots for the summer school was really awesome, thanks for setting up the software so everything ran more-or-less seamlessly...
... I just had a life time experience and great motivations for my future study and work...
...I greatly enjoyed the course and feel I have taken a great deal away from it and grown as a researcher as a result...
The consortium says thank you to all the extremely motivated researchers that made this event a great success.
