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.
