NXT Brief Documentation This document is meant to give an general overview of the NXT programming environment and to help people get started programming quickly. Start Up Double click this icon to start the NXT Mindstorms programming environment: This is the start up screen that should appear (or something similar for other operating systems): The start up screen gives two options: a tutorial which gives an general tour of the NXT programming environment and and two choices for programming. The first option is for starting a new program. One simply types a new name or one can just use the default name (if one uses the default name, the program will ask for a file name when saving). The second one is for editing a program that was already created and save from a previous session.

If one decides to create a new program, the following screen appears: The blank area is used for laying out blocks to construct programs. The blocks for assembling programs come from the block menu at the far left (more about this later). Programs start from a start block as shown here: Simply select a block from the block menu and connect it to the start block. The three nodes on a start block allow one to connect three simultaneous sequences of blocks though people don't commonly do this. One can extend these nodes as needed.
