Feels like just yesterday that I got wrecked in the 2015 Challenge.
Every year I see a handful interested in seeing how the higher ranking contestants did their bots. But I find it extremely hard to go back on my entries once the hype and reward has passed.
Now I am by no means saying that I will be among the top 8 again this year. But as usual I will fight for it.
So I decided that I will do my documenting in real time, I am also doing a time lapse of my full bot coding process. One of the reasons is I want to see how much time I spent on a bot. But at the same time I can also try and help others.
I will hold off on the vast majority of my content till after the finals.
I am planning a followup post aimed at helping new contestants get started.
Note: The above keeps the past few years’ rules in mind, so if there would be any objections from higher ups, feel free to let me know
Good Luck to everyone.
Enjoy your Easter
