JRobots Coding Convention
A team, a bot and an arena. During four hours, the participants developed algorithms for a Java-Bot – Aiming, driving and shooting have to be perfect so a bot can stand its ground.
Your bot can drive around, can find the enemy with its scanner and is equipped with a fat cannon to kick you enemies ass. But beware! The enemy will not be standing still. He will try everything to hit you as much as he can.
The participants develop their own algorithms in Java and will deploy their bots in the arena. There it will fight against bots from other teams: The programmers may watch the battle but never intervene after it started. At the end, there will only be one winner…
That's not as hard as it may sound. Even a beginner can take part and succeed. Of course, there will be tutors that help you, if you're stuck. The framework is changed before every contest, so the new guys have the same chances as the old dogs.
During the last years, the JRobots events were sponsored by CipSoft. Their programmers continuously improved the framework during the last years. Especially, we want to thank Raymund Fülop and Wolfgang Scholz for their work.
Normally the schedule looks like that:
