Introduction to OpenDDS Programming

Introduction to OpenDDS Programming

Get started with the OpenDDS project, Object Computing's open source implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG's) data distribution service (DDS), with this introductory course for C++ and Java developers.

Overview

Proficiency with middleware technologies like DDS has become an in-demand skill as more companies implement solutions driven by robotics, smart systems, and automation.

This 6-hour course provides participants with an overview of the DDS specification, an introduction to the OpenDDS implementation, and hands-on experience building C++ and Java applications using OpenDDS technology.

Dates: July 11 to 12, 2022

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CDT

Location: Online

Instructor: Tim Simpson

Registration Fee: $199.00 USD

Objectives

This course prepares participants to:

  • Understand the DDS’s role in developing distributed applications
  • Define custom DDS data types using OMG's interface definition language (IDL)
  • Develop and run DDS publishing and DDS subscribing applications

Intended Audience

Although everyone is welcome, this course is most valuable to distributed application developers and architects looking for a standards-based, open source, publish-subscribe middleware solution that is suitable for both real-time and non-real-time systems.

This is a live, hands-on training course. No recording of this training event will be made available for on-demand consumption.

Outline

The following topics are covered in this course:

  • Introduction to DDS
  • Defining DDS types with interface definition language (IDL)
  • Writing a DDS publishing application
  • Writing a DDS subscribing application
  • Next steps

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course, we recommend participants have a working knowledge of either C++ or Java and familiarity with object-oriented programming concepts.

Lab Requirements

Lab exercises are completed in a browser-based interactive development environment. Participants must have unfiltered internet access using a modern browser.
