Resource for C++ Rookies


For those teams starting out the season with little, or even no, experience with C++, or using it in FRC, I recently posted a comprehensive set of tutorials that walk through the full process of programming a robot, with hands on programming exercises.

I even included 2 lessons on learning simple c++ syntax for those who’ve never programmed, and 2 quizzes for self-checks.

It’s based on our team’s robot for 2014 (Aerial Assist), but I edited it to use Eclipse and RobotBuilder v1.5, in accordance with the setup for 2015.

All the lessons and resources are up at

Feedback and/or tips on improvement are of course welcome, along with questions.

Good Luck to everyone, and especially all you programmers, in this new build season!
