Bryce - RobotC

Hey Guys,
As CLGfive said, our schedules are indeed winding down. RobotC is coming along great, and I have recently purchased the program. It's great! I'm almost finished with the sensing challenge, and will soon be moving onto variables (finaly!). Also, I am using the forums on the RobotC website for help. Check them out if you get a chance, and If you just want to see what RobotC is about, check out their home page. Hopefully, I'll have that challenge completed soon. Some Links:

Clgfive - A Warning... And Some Updates

Today I thought to myself, "Hey, you haven't worked on your NXTs in a while, better get working..." After this thought I realized it was true- I was giving myself a warning to get working! First off I need to get something straight: if you guys don't post a comment to this post including a link to a program using BlueTooth remote controlling, I will have to start working on something else. It is something I don't really know how to do, and need YOUR help to improve on. Some other things are that I'm planning to film some cool just fun NXT videos, possibly involving some freestyle Tri-Bot... more on that in the next few days. I haven't been replying to a lot of comments, lately, and that is also going to change. Oh, and for all you long time followers of the blog, don't worry, things are looking up. Our schedules are winding down, leaving us with a little more time to post these days. I know Bryce has been working on some cool stuff with Robot-C and I've had tons of time to plan cool projects for the future (they're confidential, of course). Anyway, post those comments below!

Opinion - NXT-G

A lot of people debate over programming preferences. Many more advanced programmers who use RobotC or Lejos often thing of NXT-G as stupid and childish, saying how you can learn no programming skills through the software. I disagree. For you to understand why, I will make a connection to learning a spoken language. There is a grammar and there is spelling. What NXT-G does is it teaches you the grammar, basically how to program, but not the spelling, the code used to program. Post a comment below with your thoughts on the topic.
