Team 2898 Interpretive Jazz Code Release

As I'm sure is the case with many teams, we've been developing some — as freshman put it — "hella lit" code. However, we've been faced with a conundrum: how do we not only help inspire others with our code but also convey its hella litness? In order to do so, we had to be inspired ourselves.

We were struggling with how to post our code. Not how to upload to Chief Delphi or anything — even if none of us here in Oregon has any idea how to use a gas station, it's not hard to tie a thumb drive to a pidgeon. Instead, we were struggling with how to convey the code. How to convey its emotions, its true feeling and abstract shape.

However, when I saw Marshall's brilliant postulations as to the validity of interpretive dance with respect to R14 (for the unenlightened, see this thread), I was inspired to turn to alternative sources for my conveyal of our existing codebase. Team 900's consistantly innovative approaches won over once again, when they decided to do a purely oral code release. I decided to embrace this innovative new medium of audio based code releases.

As the top ranked jazz pianist in the country, assuming "the country" refers to the Principality of Sealand and the royal family is out for vacation, I knew what I had to do. I spent a week formulating the perfect improvisational composition to losslessly convey not only our code's literal content but also its emotional weight, how one is supposed to feel when the code is being ran, not just what one is supposed to do with it.

For those of you who aren't currently a tenured professor Cambridge University in the Jazz-Code Interactions department, I would recommend turning on subtitles so that you can best understand the true brilliance of this piece.

Without further ado, here is an improvisational Jazz-Neo-Glam-Funk-Core cover of our autonomous localization code: https://youtu.be/ypo_BnDAZpg

I plan to spend the next twenty six hours producing and releasing the rest of the musical impressions of our codebase in an album I like to call "The Shape of Code to Come." Of course, it's far superior to the 1959 Ornette Coleman album with a similar name. He actually copied me, believe it or not.

I trust that this release fulfills the terms and conditions required by R14. After all, some basic sets of core competencies are required of FIRST students, such as literacy, locomotion, and deep understandings of avant-garde jazz history.

I hope that our breakthrough in code conveyal technology, inspired by the precedential trailblazing of Team 900, will inspire other teams to follow suit.

Truly amazing. Might be better than Herbie Hancock.

Re: Team 2898 Interpretive Jazz Code Release

I would not be surprised if we get a blog post from Frank in the following days clarifying R14.

But how can he clarify a rule that we could not be sure existed for this season?

At the very least, I'm sure the GDC is modifying that rule right now to clarify it. Which means we all have to redownload the encrypted game manual now...

Re: Team 2898 Interpretive Jazz Code Release

Just curious, how does this actually fulfill even past R14? 900's post did detail the code enough that it was "complete information sufficient to produce the design." Are you confident that if you asked your own team to produce the design only given this video that they could do it?

900 also has a public github so most of their code is available anyway.

It is interesting that your team considers jazz as your source files, but to each their own I guess.

Just curious, do you stock up on tires for bumpers? I get this is a silly rule, but this thread doesn't actually satisfy anything other than being silly. At least 900's one followed last years version of the rules.

Maybe you're just basing on release rules being essentially the same for every game after 2012?
