Bechtel, in their Reston Virginia Facility, for the 3rd straight year will be sponsoring a 1/2 day workshopDecember 3rd from 9 am to 1 pm on FRC programming practices.  Although the workshop is primarily geared to Java programming, many of the practices are appropriate to C++ and LabView. 

Like last year, the presentations will address RobotBuilder and Eclipse as well the new lessons from this year’s Beta Testing.  Topics also expected include issues with program flow, parameter names, backup approaches and revision control as well as more programming tips.  This year’s workshop will include more programming challenges and prizes for the best solutions.  The session is open to students,  mentors and coaches from all teams regardless of location or affiliation.
