UTD Clinic – FTC Android Programming

2018-09-22 @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm

This event is intended for coaches/mentors and programming members of a FTC team.
Cost:  Free, but pre-registration is required:  https://goo.gl/forms/Ncn0uLhE9RzZNJaC3

This will be a FTC clinic focusing on programming FTC robots using OnBot Java.  The clinic will be held at UT-Dallas on Saturday, September 22 (room TBD).  Parking and event details will be sent out to registered participants.

The focus of the clinic will be programming and control systems using OnBot Java, although we’ll be glad to discuss any topic pertaining to FTC.   If there are any specific programming topics you would like to see covered, please contact Patrick Michaud.  Currently the clinic is expected to cover:

– configuring phones and controllers
– FTC programming basics – OpModes and LinearOpModes
– motor and servo control
– gamepads and driving logic
– organizing code into functions
– sensor basics, including gyro / IMU
– threads and concurrency (time permitting)

We don’t expect to have any “hands-on exercises” in the clinic, so you don’t need to bring a robot, control systems, laptop, or other equipment with you.  You’re welcome to bring these things if you like (for demonstration, questions, troubleshooting, etc.), but we won’t be allocating a lot of time during the clinic itself to work on them.

Location: University of Texas at Dallas, room TBD

Again, please pre-register for this clinic to receive information on location, parking, etc.
