Developer

Introduction

If you are a developer on the Blue Crew and don't know where to start, this is a great place. All of these documents help to outline the development process that the Blue Crew uses to ensure that our robot runs every year. We have in years past used a programming language called Java to program our robot, but now we use a language called Python. Python is significantly easier, and faster to write than Java. Although it's not officially supported by FIRST, it is not our language of choice for robot code and team projects.

Code Guidelines

We use a system called "git", which is a type of version control, to manage our code. We keep all of our code on our team's GitHub page. To learn more about our code guidelines, check out our documentation avalable here.
