targeted that audience: we built a wiki, filled it with documentation,
tutorials, and code examples, and made the wiki the landing page at

Well, times have changed. Now, six years into the project, we have a
broader audience to consider. We want to reach teachers who are considering

Btw, like most things we do, the website itself is at
If you run into a problem or have an idea for improving the site, open an
issue <https://github.com/osrf/www.ros.org/issues> and we'll have a look.
