I’ve found that many people are posting for help, or trying to create new communities, I thought it would be helpful to create a growing list of resources for VEX that ** Anyone ** could add too!

I hope all of these resources are helpful to you and if you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to add them!
Thanks for adding these links. Now anyone can find some resource to help them other than the Forum.
wait so vex cast is officially dead now?
Welllllllllllllll. The scheduling kept falling apart every time and we seemed to get more positive responses on the shows we didn’t put any work into and always got meh reactions to the ones that were in line with our vision of what it should be. (also no one ever seemed to want to talk)
I could do live question and answer sessions on twitch or youtube under the VEXCast name but that is the most that we will probably ever happen.
Your videos are very helpful! Thanks
I thought I’d update this list with more useful information!

I am trying to find the 2016 BNS parts library… where is it located?
Is there no resource specifically for VEXU teams?
