John Hansen, the author of NXC, a C-style programming language for the NXT that runs on the original NXT firmware on the brick, has announced that Variant Press will soon publish his new book,
NXT Power Programming. Robotics in C.
It can be pre-ordered now at Amazon.com or Variant Press.
The author on his book:
"NXT Power Programming delivers everything you need to create the robot you've always dreamed about. This is the definitive guide to C programming by the developer of some of the most powerful and popular development tools for LEGO MINDSTORMS.I'm positive that everyone who has used NXC in the past as an alternative to the "official" language NXT-G will be anxiously awaiting the availability of that book at 7th of November (including me).
John C. Hansen presents a comprehensive yet friendly set of tools that allow you to create almost any robot you can imagine. Inside, youll find an ingenious set of projects that explore the complete arsenal of NXT functionality. At the heart of these projects is Versa, a versatile mobile robot platform utilizing modular attachments."
