WPILib is the TCS Lighting Blue Lizards new way of using Javas language to a whole other level. Promoted by the FRC company, programmers have never been so efficient.

The FRC company has given the Robotics Team the WPILib in order to compete in the regionals, they are using it in their code for the robots movement and actions. The team has until February 28th to build, program and get sponsors, after that its time for competing until March 3 2018.

“We are creating test programs so that we can use the robot and see how it works, and getting the hang of it so that we can get right into building when the season starts,” Pedro Velazquez TCS 12th grade student, said.

The WPILib allows writers to make a base code which they can edit later, it helps to see all parts of the code and check for any mistakes. Programmers are only beginning to understand coding and Java language, the WPILib will guide them through the learning stages of coding.

“We’re using Java that allows us to do the robot with object oriented programming so every category is its own class and they interact together to make the robot work,” Velazquez, said.

Programers are using Java and constructing the codes that will make the robot move, they have to be very careful with each and every line of code they write and more. “Basically we have to ensure that the motors are working perfectly, it is what controls every subsystem, every motor, vector, jaguar and every moving part,” Gabriel Vallejo, 11th grade TCS lead programer, said.

“By using the WPILib we ensure an easier process of programming, that orders every amount of motors and moving parts that we need into a code that we can then program on or write on,” Vallejo, said.

WPILib allows any error to get fixed by making a big main code which shows all of the basic “moving parts” of the robot and allows programs to edit it and make it better. According to Velazquez, “It helps you save time and effort in writing a complex code.”

“It helps you with the coding and we use object oriented algorithms in order to build the code for the robot using java and the WPILib,” Julian Zuñiga, TCS Robotics Club Teacher, said.
