We will be delivering a half day of training where you'll get a quick review of the existing components and then jump into a detailed presentation about all the new components for 2010. The presenters will be the developers from the project team who have been working for the last year to make the new tools available. We will also have Adam Martin from Team 40 showing his robot code ported to Java that was used successfully in off-season competitions this year.
The seminar will be webcast to any FIRST teams that are unable to make it to Worcester. Team members viewing the webcast will be able to participate by asking questions in real-time from their computers.
