Hello VEX community!
I used to be involved with a VEX team until I joined my high school’s FRC team. One of the things that I have learned through VEX and FIRST is that a reliable robot is one of the greatest competitive advantages that a team can have. For this reason, I wrote a quick blog post about what I have learned regarding writing a reliable robot program. I hope that your team finds this helpful!
This blog was originally written for FRC teams so most of the examples are in Java, but the concepts can easily be adapted to VEX robotics, and I first implemented many of these ideas in VEX. In addition, there are more posts that can be fairly easily adapted to VEX robotics from the FRC system.
