When you think about the types of jobs you get as a Python developer, you probably weight the differences between data science and web development.

But did you consider programming robots in Python? And not just toys, but serious, productive machines. It turns out there is a gap in the industry where we could use more Python developers in robotics.

That's why I'm happy to have Ricardo Tellez here to give us an overview of the software development side of robotics programming with Python.
