LEGO Mindstorms EV3 software Tutorial for learning to Program with the new Software
The best part about learning to progrem using the EV3 Software is that you can use the new software to program both your NEW LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot, but also use the same software to program the NXT Brick as well. Once you learn this new language, you will be able to use it for either programming EV3 or the NXT robot brick.
