This is our first year in FTC and due to school politics we had to start just last week. We currently have 42 kids on our team and plan to build 4 bots with 4 teams. Our School is VERY EXCITED!!
My questions is the programming. In the KOP we ordered through FIRST we didn’t receive any programming software and are at a loss as to what to do. We thought we had to use JAVA this year and expect to get a copy.
Is there a place I can go to order JAVA or a FIRST version of JAVA. Any other ideas, comments, or questions would be appreciated as we are a little at a loss. Where should a rookie team, in FTC go to learn JAVA for FTC.
Yes RobotC was something teams had to pay for. Side note on that we decided to switch to RobotC last year and paid for 30 lifetime licenses expecting to get good use out of them but FIRST decided to not tell teams their plans to go to JAVA until after the majority of the season was over.
Has anyone found a better place to learn the programming software at? Or is there any other place? I have given ftc.edu.intelitek.com my all, and it seems to be not up to date on the latest version of the Android Studios program. Can someone either help me with this or point me in the right direction? Thank you.
