RPU

After a nice rookie year (well, it's not over yet ), i've noticed a few things about FIRST, and my job (on the team). I'm a programmer, and i've noticed that programmers seem to get the least respect. Sure, the guy who can go and build the robot is amazing, but the person who made all the little parts inside work, well, who cares about him? All you programmers know what i'm talking about. So, i've decided to do something about it. That's where RPU comes in.

Robotics Programms' Union. Yes, that's right, the programmers will rise up and become noticed! Fellow programmers, unite! We must show the rest of FIRST that we are important! We must demand respect! We need to get recognized! Plus, Dan already made us a nice logo, so you'll make him cry if you don't join .

Speaking about the logo...


See, now you have to join! Otherwise, you'll be forced back into the programming cave, fed fish heads, and only let out to upload the new program, tell the drivers the controls, then beforced back in. It must stop now! Join RPU!!

Wow, i really need to get out more . Also, this is posted in the Chit Chat section to raise more awareness about RPU, cause i don't think everyone frequents the Programming Forum.

Yay! We have new members! I think Dan made some RPU Button logos, but we just used up all of our buttons (we were making buttons for our team). If anyone wants the logo, i think we can print them out, and give them out. You need to supply your own buttons and button makers though.

I didn't realize that we were that oppresed

By the way, HTML in itself isn't really programming, but if you use Java/Javascript/Perl/PHP or whatever else, I would guess that you qualify as a programmer. Sort of

::raises hand::

Dude, what happened to the CODEX?

Maybe a joint venture between the RPU and the CODEX, to make a resource for all the FIRST programmers out there? A place to get ideas from, a place to find a shoulder to cry on... hehe, jk.

You know all the programmers on 422 will glady join. If you could, print out the logo on sticker paper, so we can all just paste them to our shirts at Nats or some such. That'd be easier than bringing along button makers, and I'd try to convince my team that our robot needs to wear the RPU logo... We'll be needing at least 4 stickers

Hmm, sticker paper you say.

Dan-
Where can we get sticker paper here?

Also, maybe we can make a joint RPU/CODEX logo. Does CODEX even have a logo yet? It's an idea, and we can get lots of stickers, and hand them out to all the programmers. then, when they're not respected, they just show off the RPU?CODEX sticker, and then the team will step back in fear . Power to the Programmers!

CODEX logo

Here it is... the CODEX logo. This has been the official one for a year, but I personally think it could use some spiffing up...

programming slow down or show down?

gui-
i'll be seeing dan tonight (in about 30 minutes actually) so i'll tell him to go and look at the logo for CODEX. if he feels like it, i'll ask him to make a CODEX/RPU logo. not sure if he has the time, but i'm guessing he will have some time this weekend. hmm, a cross between the CODEX and RPU logo would look pretty cool. i'll have to find dan now.

To quote the Grail,
We're living in a dictatorship! A self-perpetuating autocracy in which us, the working class - yes, it's all about class - are constantly the butt of everyone's anger! We take the blame for anything that goes wrong! We are the ones being repressed! For example, littlefish180's comments... come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, we're being repressed!!


As for the buttons, click here to download the RPU button templates from my home-brewn webserver (psd format, 12 buttons from one 8.5x11). They're in approximately 2.25 inch form. We would make some for everyone, but we ran out of blanks to work on. I'm managed to... er... 'set aside' 5 blanks for the Glory of Cause, but 5 buttons aren't enough to encompass everyone that shall become a member of the Cause. We must band together and each contribute to the Cause!

As for the CODEX logo, I can't do anything tonight, but I'll work on something over the weekend.

I proudly rise up and support my fellow programmers. Why, the engineers job is relatively easy to understand, any monkey could do it. But we programmers, we're the sorcerers, we're not understood, but we have unbelievable power. I say we unite, and in one big voice say "It's a mechanical problem!"

I don't know about that...matching gear ratios, building transmissions, and stuff like that seems hard to me. Programming is pretty easy: The computer does exactly what you tell it to.
