Emily's Discovery

Outstanding robot programmer Emily finds the seminar challenge helps her improve her skills and knowledge.
"I'm really learning a lot on this global mechatronics trip! I found out, for example, that the C programming language is so 1980. I mean, it's great for low level manipulation, adding 1 and 1 and hopefully getting 2 most of the time. But more modern languages like Matlab, they work at a much higher level of abstraction. Multiplying matrices together in Matlab is really straightforward, no problem. "
"Yes, I'm having a lot of my programming prejudices challenged by this mechatronics class, but that's a good thing!" -- interpreted and paraphrased by Frank Kelso
