C++ Can always help, You should be able to make it with those 3, Good luck

so what kind of things you wanna do ? what do you mean by robot ? if you want to automate tasks, python will do the job.

As far as I know, Raspberry pi is thought to work with python.
Example: even though Piface is controllable with Java, it is based on Python.

Consider Arduino too.

Hi there

I would strongly recommend Python, being perfectly suited for the Pi, with excellent socket/http libraries, and easy control of the Pi's GPIOs.

My friend and I used Python for a bot we made with a Pi, the code's here if you wanted to take a look at our approach :) https://github.com/developius/ReCoRVVA

Hope that helps.
