I wanted to start a discusstion on WMLUG and involvement in FIRST Robotics.
We had a good discussion at the end of our last user group meeting and I wanted to involve the rest of the group.
Some of the things that were discussed.
1. FIRST is having an event in October that they would like to have interested people show up to answer questions and possibly get involved with a team. Hopefully the date will be posted here soon.
2. Have a meet and greet meeting in early fall. This would introduce interested engineers and FIRST teams who need LabVIEW programming help. At this meeting we would discuss some archtectures, programming style, and software engineering concepts. The thought is teams could play around with LabVIEW to get comfortable with the envirnment before the season starts.
3. Have a question and answer session in late January early Feburary to answer any questions that teams who are building robots have. This would take the place of our first quater user group meeting.
Please add any comments, ideas, or concerns you might have.
