Karthik & 1114: Effective FIRST Strategies 2012

With the Championships in St. Louis rapidly approaching, I'd like to remind teams of the FIRST Robotics Conference which will be taking place. At 4:00 PM on Wednesday evening, myself and Team 1114 will once again be delivering our seminar on Effective FIRST Strategies. This year, FIRST has graciously given us 2 hours to present on this topic, which will allow us to cover some topics at a much more in depth level than the past, as well as covering some entirely new topics.

Here are the threads discussing the last three editions of this seminar:

http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...05#post1054705
http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=76778
http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=84958

And the abstract:

Quote:
This presentation focuses on three major areas, Strategic Design, Match Planning/Execution, and Scouting. Rather than spending time on equations and detailed calculations, the Strategic Design gives a more high-level overview of how to design an FRC robot. This portion of the presentation includes sections on such often neglected strategic design areas such as Game Analysis, Chokehold Strategies, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Task Prioritization, and Tradeoffs using a case studies from past games. The Match Planning/Execution section of the presentation discusses effective habits and strategies that will help lead a team to victory. This is a must for those who enjoy the strategic aspects of FIRST. The Scouting section deals with effective techniques to collect information on your partners/opponents, and how to make the most of this data. Advanced statistical metrics analgous to "Sabremetrics" in baseball will also be discussed. The presentation is filled with entertaining and insightful historical FIRST anecdotes from the past 14 years. With the information in this presentation, you can turn your team from a mere competitor to a perennial powerhouse!
Some specific topics that we plan on discussing that haven't been covered in detail in the past.

- Why "OPR" is a flawed indicator in Rebound Rumble
- Alliance selection strategy & the "Do Not Pick List"
- The "secrets" behind the accomplishments of the great teams

If there are any topics you'd like to discussed in detail, or questions you'd like answered, post them here and we'll be happy to address them during the presentation.

If you're really into FIRST strategy, looking to improve your team, curious what it means to "ball so hard", or just looking for some good FIRST related laughs, this is a presentation you won't want to miss.

I hope to see all of you there!

I'll be there! Karthik and 1114 always manage to have a fantastic presentation. Informative, helpful for people of all experience levels, and hilarious! I'm glad it will be recorded this year so I can pass it on to FIRST friends who aren't there.

I've wanted to see this first hand for years! Guess I'll have to wait a little longer...

I'm glad 1114 is recording it this year though! I can't wait to see it!!

Thank you for everything you do Karthik! You and 1114 are truly role-models in FIRST.

Re: Karthik & 1114: Effective FIRST Strategies 2012

I would be interested in a nice little talk about practice. Oh yes, I said PRACTICE.PRACTICE.

The benefits of doing specific skills drills vs. 2 minute match formats.

Full field vs. 1/2 court.

I have had the privelege of watching a few top notch teams practice, and I was impressed with some of the things I saw. I have observed some of the benefits of drills with my own team in 2007, 2010, and 2011.

Re: Karthik & 1114: Effective FIRST Strategies 2012

The conference registration page says that the single/individual passes are for 45 minute presentations. Was this just an oversight by FIRST, or do we need a different pass to attend your conference?

I have never been able to catch this presentation. But this year I have booked my flight so that I can get to St. Louis in time to see it. Who needs to go to Wednesday classes when you can go to a lecture presented by Karthik?
