Judge here on a late season regional championships (hey I’m a judge for hire! )
Just blown away on the 470+ page notebooks both digital and paper (paper book is a three ring binder full of the VEX standard notebooks).
To be honest, I’ve seen professional design packages with less documentation.
Notebooks are much more detailed. lots of pictures, code (please put comments IN your code) with annotations in the notebooks. CAD drawings with pictures of the actual build. Heat maps of the best driver and auto sequences to drive. Videos of testing cycles. QR codes to videos in paper books.
Back when I started (VEX was steam powered) notebooks were frail, maybe a few pages, then sticky notes on pages. This new wave is amazing. My autobiography would be less than the 500 pages of a single build season (and my life would be less interesting).
Now that the season is down to the end, tell us (HEY POST A LINK!!) about your notebook. Electronic or organic? Solo scribe? Have a base notebook that is your reference? Notebook tips that pushed you into the top?
Because of Covid, was it easier to document because of the social distance / Zoom meetings?
Lots of reveal videos about the robot, but lots of awards (Excellence, Design, Think, Create) all look to the notebook. Help all of the teams excel for next year.
