After 7.5 hours of class, the second session of web development training is over! Thanks to everyone who came to learn; the seminar was a huge success, and hopefully everyone had as much fun as I did. Check out the page for the seminar itself here for the full curriculum and details of the seminar.
Link to sign-up: http://goo.gl/forms/HP4MVtyzEo Just as a heads up, I'll be hosting a development seminar (with the same content as the original one), but this time it'll be during the second week of school for those that couldn't make it the first time around. It'll be from 4:10 PM - 6:30 PM on Monday 8/31, Wednesday 9/2 and Thursday 9/3 in the Chap Room. Again, these were the best times I cou...

The materials required for FRC compatibility of the ChapR were delivered to two of our beta testing teams today: 148 (the RoboWranglers) and 1477 (Texas Torque). They will begin testing for us in the coming weeks, sending bug reports, general feedback and testimonials. Check back later for more information!

We just finished our two submissions for the SXSWedu Education Expo Student Startup Competition, powered by LaunchGen. We're submitting both the ChapR and Chap Research. However, only one will be selected as a finalist (because both are under the same organization). Still, it'll be a great opportunity to talk about what we've done (and maybe win $1000). Keep your fingers crossed!
Today was our presentation of the Fruit Spiral. Lots of people came by and thought it was cool, especially since we were one of the only student exhibits at TEDx labs (the one hour intermission between speakers at TEDx). We even had a couple of students asking how to get started making their own projects.
Though the ChapR has only offered compatibility for NXT-based robots up until this point, we have been working on software 2.0 of the ChapR to add FRC compatibility to the ChapR, as well as match mode functionality. Check out www.thechapr.com for more information!
