Typically a beta application announcement from FIRST goes out in the summer. FIRST reviews the applications and selects the teams for beta testing, which occurs in the fall.

Re: WPILib is adapting GradleRIO - Jaci has become too powerful and we must stop her

Is there any word on how "official" this all is. I'm going to start teaching students as soon as possible. I'll be meeting with them this week, and I am wondering if I ought to tell them that we will be using VS Code next year, and if I should be checking out how to use VS Code myself along with Git so that I can teach students in the fall. If we are talking about beta testing in the fall, is this looking at a 2019 rollout, or 2020?

I'm all for flexibility, except that I'm dealing with 14 year olds with very little experience programming. "Flexibility" just means "more things that can go wrong." I want to make sure they are well versed in this stuff before kickoff, because it might take a few weeks before they get the hang of it, so I want to make sure those few weeks are not during build season.

Re: WPILib is adapting GradleRIO - Jaci has become too powerful and we must stop her

One of the things I've *liked* about Eclipse over my career is the availability of good plugins for integrating other tools. SpotBugs and Eclipse-PMD are pretty helpful when dealing with student code...

I haven't been able to find equivalents for VSC. I know I can drop back to the command line to get the same functionality, but am I just not looking hard enough?

As for the flexibility, because it's a more standard setup, less things go wrong. And if something does go wrong, unlike eclipse it's usually easier to fix because of the flexibility.

If you set up those plugins in Gradle, vscode won't give errors in it's main editor window, but during builds and deploy we do open a window where you can see the console commands being run. With these, you'll at least be able to see the errors in that console. I can look into making it so these errors could be parsable and display the errors in the main editor window. But other then that, that's probably one thing that isn't as integrated as eclipse.

Thanks. Looks like it's off to the download page.

Thumbs up Re: WPILib is adapting GradleRIO - Jaci has become too powerful and we must stop her

This is awesome news! Thanks for all the work that went into this.

What we really need now is a VSCode extension to officially support C# using RobotDotNet! Any plans Thad?

If I were to ever restart work on RobotDotNet I definitely would, however I currently have no plans to do that. With other commitments I just no longer have the free time to support the actual library development. If somebody wants to pick of the development of the libraries, I have mostly completed getting deployment working with the .net core CLI, so it would actually be really easy to get working in VS Code, but it would require the libraries being actively worked on for me to pick that back up.

I might try to work on at least the P/Invoke layer for the HAL, which is the biggest thing that needs changing for now, and I have an NT Core 4.0 rewrite basically done, but the main libraries still need a lot of work.
