Steps we follow to setup, design, code, deploy, and test our software.
Setup development tools
We follow the typical set of First FRC tools: Eclipse and Robot Builder. For instructions on setting up a student's laptop please follow the steps in the following link: docs.google.com/document/d/1t-QXulBx4_Kz_4Nn4M-XAhw0_YdCjrxIjOvghimbcgY/edit?usp=sharing
How we complete the coding
Using Eclipse we import the robot builder generated code and make the remaining 15% changes to the code that completes a majority of our coding effort.
How we design our software
We use the First FRC tool Robot Builder to design 85% of the generated code.
How we deploy and test
We use eclipse and a test bed that we created that has all the hardware the completed robot will have. After deploy the code we use eclipse and the FRC Driver station to trigger hardware to activate as we desire.
