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.
Remember that you have a programming lesson in the EV3 software under the Quick Start Tab and in the Robot Educator Tab in your EV3 Software/Basics and Beyond Basics.
Sorry, I didn't find any other building instructions yet as the robot has only been release for a couple of months. I will post any new building instructions, but until then, here are some NXT building plans that should also work for EV3 with a litle adjustment.
