Why does the ROS2 5 Days Course Project part 1.1 say create a catkin package?

I think this content came from a ROS1 Course Project, which of course would have taught how to create catkin packages. Further down it says to create all content in ros2_ws which suggests it is perfectly fine to use colcon build.

This is confusing for someone coming into the project for the first time - I think it should be edited.

I apologize for this. We’ll correct it ASAP.

No worries - I think it will help the students. I copied the combo subscriber / publisher we create in the course and am leveraging that with colcon build and apart from a few rosbridge messages dropped it’s starting to come together :smiley:
