    • If you can choose between rosbuild and catkin, select rosbuild
    • If you can choose between C++ and Python, select C++
    • Whenever the tutorial refers to the beginners_tutorial ROS package, use the name of the package you created above instead (that is, beginners_tutorial_<YOUR_NAME>). Of course, you can use TAB completion when possible.
    • The path to your ROS package differs from the path in the ROS tutorials
