Cross-posted from the ROS blog.
When we started work on ROS, like most young open source projects, our greatest need was to recruit early adopters and fellow developers. So we targeted that audience: we built a wiki, filled it with documentation, tutorials, and code examples, and made the wiki the landing page at www.ros.org.
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 using ROS in their classrooms, managers who want to use ROS in a new product, journalists who are writing stories about ROS, and many, many others.
So, in celebration (just a bit late) of ROS’s sixth birthday, we’re pleased to present a new www.ros.org.
After all, a grown-up ROS deserves a grown-up website. Don’t worry: the wiki is still there, as are all the other ROS sites on which we depend.
