i want to learn about robotic and i have no idea where to start. problem is that my college dont have any robotic class. so i have to learn every thing on my own. goal is to build and program a robot.
should i start learning about hardware or software? even with software i guess there are in many different languages.
would i have to buy hardware parts? or a kit? is it cheap? any idea of good kits? and would i have to buy any software too? any there any good tutorial on youtube? sorry for a lot of question. any advice you give me will be helpful.
i want to software in java or c just become i already how who to use it. also i dont want to program kids looking robot like legos etc.. i want to program a robot that i can show other people. i am sure some legos robots are not for kids but my family and friends dont understand software or computers so they probably would laugh it me for it.
