Team 830 had it’s last meet of the season at Livonia yesterday. Everyone came together and finally got the robot to a competitive state. I have no doubt that if we had gotten the robot to this state by the beginning of the first meet we would have made it to states. It was most of the team’s rookie year (both student’s and mentors) and by all measures I think we did fantastic. By the end of the competition we were making three point shots all the way from across the field (over fifty feet!). Despite being ranked twenty first after the qualifying rounds the students were not selected to move on to the elimination round. However, the students received the Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers award for best business plan. Team 830 has big ideas about how we can raise money for the team over the summer, and I am excited to see where that leads. Below is a video I captured a video of our last match of the season.
FRC830 has our second competition of the season in Livonia this weekend. We had the competition bot unbagged for a few hours today and decided to give our drivers some time to practice.
I wanted to put all of my PyCon stuff in one place for easy reference. When I get a moment to breathe I want to do a write up about what it took to put everything together.
Here is the short talk I gave.
Here are the slides from the tutorial:
