    Hi All I am a student and new with this technology and the field as well and want to work on this technology in my final year project. I bought tobii 4C and run some some basic programs using tobii documentation. can you people guide me through the journey of getting expert in it ?
    I need full direction towards getting started with this device best tools to use with it for this purpose I learn C# as I see the examples using WPF and C#. Is that good?
    https://tobii.github.io/CoreSDK/articles/getting_started.html I used this guide to start up and play with the device but still needs more to go and find this forum helpful for me . It will be good if anyone provide me step by step guide to move on and explore this device to become an expert.

    Thanks,
    Roshan

    Hi @roshan, glad to hear you are getting up and running with the 4C.

    In addition to the getting started documentation which includes considerable explanations (with code) of the main features of using the eye tracker, we have a complete range of ready to run samples programs available @ https://github.com/Tobii/CoreSDK
    with additional interaction API examples @ https://github.com/Tobii/interaction-samples

    Furthermore, there are a few tutorials made a while ago related to the now deprecated Gaze SDK so the syntax will
    be different from the Core SDK but perhaps still useful for you:
    http://developer.tobii.com/category/tutorials/

    If you manage to run through all these links and are comfortable in understanding their use, I should say you will be well on your way to developing an expertise in eye tracking programming!

    Thank you for your quick response I will try my best to perform all of them in terms of being comfortable with this technology.

    Hi!

    You can also take a look at Unity SDK samples for game related features:

    Hi @roshan, so long as your intention is to develop applications for interactive use and that the only supported language for the time being within the Core SDK Interaction API is C#, then this is the logical choice for you to stay with for the time being.

    Hi All,
    till now I can only manage to execute few samples but I cannot manage to do something other than that because I am not from the computer background. In this situation what you can suggest me to do or the list of steps I should follow in sequence. Kindly guide me with that.

    Hi @roshan, although we try to make getting started with our various development kits as simple as possible, there is indeed an assumption of a basic level of knowledge for the various relevant programming languages used.

    If you are only just beginning to learn coding, then you might find moving beyond the samples somewhat challenging.

    There are many tutorials and help available online for .NET programming but without a greater idea of your intentions, it is difficult to provide more specific information for you. If you could kindly let us know what it is you would like to do with our SDK, I should be better placed to point you in the right direction.

    For the time being, I would advise following the getting started tutorial as described in the Core SDK Documentation which demonstrates setting up an eye tracking enabled application from scratch which should at least help you get familiar with the basic concepts.
