RTanque Setup

November 16, 2017

It's time for another RTanque event, but now we want to take it seriously. So bring your laptops and make sure you have Ruby 2.3 or better installed.

We'll start by getting RTanque installed and running on everyone's laptops. The project hasn't been updated in a while so we've created a branch with updated dependencies that should install more easily.

Next we'll go through some details about how the tank brains work and the tools available for programming them. Once everyone has a handle the basics, we have a series of small challenges to sharpen your tank brain and prepare you for combat.

The fun doesn't stop there. We plan to host a proper RTanque battle later next year with prizes! So keep working on your tank and challenge people in Slack!
