This Week in FRC Sep 8th-14th 2014

Simbot Seminar Series

The Simbots are an amazing team. So amazing in fact that they are going to teach everyone else how to be amazing. Karthik Kanagasabapathy and several other Simbotics mentors will be hosting Seminars each week on various FRC topics. This is absolutely huge for the community. Karthik's strategy talk has been standing room only nearly every time he has given it at FRC Championship.

The seminars start October 1st and will last through the fall. Check out this CD thread for all the details.

If you just can't wait till the 1st, how about (re)watching Karthik's Effective Strategy talk from Championship 2013.
