Programming Language

FRC LabVIEW software has been used for the past three seasons (2010 - 2012).

C++ and Java are also supported by FRC and could be used if the programming team decides to do so.

Code Repository

For the past two seasons (2011 and 2012), the programming team has used Mercurial source control management and Bitbucket for the code repository. Having code in a repository allows the team to share their code even when they do not see each other in person. It also allows the student lead to manage and incorporate code from the rest of the team into the main robot code project.

GitHub is under consideration for the code repository for the 2013 season.
