Misty Robotics blog: Robot Development Platforms Pt. 1


New quick blog post by yours truly on development frameworks for robots. Please take a read and don’t be shy about letting me know if I missed any important ones. :slight_smile:

Thanks again very much for the tips, Scott! I just traded out Miro for a quick mention of LCM in the blog post.
