The code team, although smaller than the build team, is key to the robot's performance in autnomous and general remote controls. This year, instead of using stratch as the main programming language, the Bionic Bulldogs switched completely to Java with the OnBot IDE. This switch made making changes more efficient and opened up opportunities to do new things, as well as the ability to share our code on the internet and with other teams/allies.
Our code is hosted on GitHub
The limit per team is 15 according to FTC rules. But with a large number of students interested in being in Robtics Club at RB a Core team and Alternate team was created. A core team member is allowed to compete at competitions but must be commited to showing up when asked, work productively with others, and be respectful to everyone. While an alternate team member is able to participate in workshops and attend half of the meetings a week but are not allowed to physically touch the robot. They are allowed of course to share their ideas with other people on the alternate team.
