Hi Gonçalo,
great idea, you shall get in my colleagues from
as well.

As Ken already pointed out, we recently carried out a ROS Fall School
for 60+ ROS newbies and we thus have a bunch of theoretical as well as
practical material that you may recycle. I especially recommend you to
have a look at talks 2 to including 7 in the following list:

For the practical part you wonna start with these:

And if you want a bit more advanced stuff you can have them make Day1
and Day2 tutorials from the Fall School:

cheers, D.

> Hi everyone!
> For the past few months me and my colleague Pedro Sousa have been learning
> ROS and developing nodes for most of the hardware we have on our lab. We are
> now working on documentation and cleaning up our repository.
> We believe that our next step should be to share what we have learned so far
> with the rest of the ISR-Coimbra community of professors, students and
> researchers. For this purpose we came up with the ROS Day.
> Our goal is to first of all introduce people in the ISR-Coimbra to ROS,
> explaining what it can do, what it is meant for and how they can benefit
> from it (and how we can all benefit if we all use the same tools). Secondly
> we intend to speed up the learning process of our colleagues.
> To achieve our goals we were thinking about dividing the ROS Day in 2 parts.
> A first session will consist of a presentation with some Q&A at the end. A
> second session would be somewhat of a workshop where people could bring
> their laptops and we could all do some exploring and coding.
> So my question is if anyone has had any experience with this sort of thing
> before? What kind of topics would be interesting to approach for a first
> contact with ROS? (Always keeping in mind we have just started ourselves!!!)
> Also if anyone has got any materials on this subject (like presentations)
> they would like to share we would be very thankful.
> Any comments and ideas are also welcome :)
