Our Future . . .

When I initially created this site in 2014, it was to serve two primary purposes.

  1. To document the tips, tricks, and other higher level development practices that make programming for FRC in LabVIEW easier.
  2. Provide a common place for LabVIEW teams to find resources.

At first, this meant documenting the architectural and similar tools that I had learned on my way to becoming a Certified LabVIEW Developer, that had been put to use by the team I was currently mentoring (#3937, Breakaway). (This had the added bonus of helping the senior programmer that had been soaking all this up document it for his successor.)

Since then, this site has had a few additions and updates (mostly by me).

While I have often invited other teams (I am no longer in the AR area and have pretty much lost contact with Breakaway) on CD and at the regionals I've been at to write tutorials for specific topics that they had solved, I was rarely met with a response (specifically once - shout out to the Huskie Robotics 3061 for actually following through, but they were the only ones).

 

In recent years, I have found myself going through some family changes and needing to dial back my commitment to other activities.

This leaves this site both:

  1. Looking for a new champion/curator, that is willing to:
    • maintain the back end,
    • make sure material that becomes obsolete is either updated, or moved to the archives section of the menu,
    • and either write content or get other teams to write content to help this site remain relevant.
  2. Looking for a new source of funding/hosting. (I have been personall providing the $36/yr that it costs to maintain it using Google Domains for the domain name - and email - and Hosting24 for the hosting; I have thought about using some sort of a Donate button, but have not been able to find a platform that allows for *only* raising the target amount).

 

If you have any interest in seeing the continuation of this site, please let me know.

Purpose

This website was created for the express purpose of posting informative tutorials on the FRC control system programmed in LabVIEW.
It is not intended to duplicate existing getting started guides, but to compliment them. Some of the good ones we are aware of are here:

Please look around and see the available tutorials. More will come, but if you would like to request one be made for a specific purpose, fill out this form.

Please Note

Some pictures on this website are vi snippets - pictures created by LabVIEW that can be put back in LabVIEW and they become code again - those that are, will download when clicked on or can be dragged to a local folder like the desktop, then dragged into LabVIEW.
