paper: An FRC Anthology

Thread created automatically to discuss a document in CD-Media.

An FRC Anthology by tjf

Overview:
When I started out in FRC in 2016, I tried to make a loose set of notes that could help me through it, and that I could reference. Those notes still sucked, but ended up helping quite a few people out, to my shock.

Abstract:
This summer, as I enter my fourth year involved in FRC, I set out to document the different aspects of the program, and as much of what I learned as possible. Strategy, Imagery, Business, Awards, and of course, the Robot. I included the best practices I learned that made sense, and asked for help from community members, mentors, and volunteers who were willing to lend a hand.

Releasing early in September was a goal of mine as I wanted to get it out to teams before the build season and their training starts. That way, if a part of the document is helpful or inspires change, they can make it for this season and hopefully do better.

Special Thanks To:

Additionally, two of the primers I had written for the Encyclopedia Robotica V2 were adapted for this project, and as such, probably are a good compliment.

Re: paper: An FRC Anthology

This had already been distributed in some chats I'm in, so I figured I might as well share it on CD. Hope it's helpful!

Great job, Tim!
Love the format and the transformation of so much important information in an easily followed text. Your efforts will help so many teams, new and old. I will be sharing your awesome resource at some of the workshops we are hosting in the near future. Keep up the good work!

Stoked to have made the cut for logo design! This is a super awesome recourse and we will definitely use to introduce FRC to students.

Re: paper: An FRC Anthology

This looks like a good resource with a lot of effort put in, nice work. It would be great if the PDF was searchable - right now I can't seem to search or select text.

That's an unfortunate side effect of the formatting. I used fonts that Publisher attempted to convert to bitmaps, and the original intended format was paper where it wouldn't be an issue. I'll upload a copy in a searchable format sooner rather than later - it'll just be a significant amount of effort though.
