I’m pretty sure the v5 coding studio has robot c++
robotC is not compatible with the V5
However, you don’t have to use VCS. Then PROS and other things will be available to you.
Contrary to this PROS 3 officially supports V5 and is available to beta testers.
VEX Coding Studio is Vex’s flagship programming system and supports C++. I suspect it will be the most similar programming system out of all of the options to RobotC. Both PROS and VEX Coding Studio can have RobotC concepts transferred over fairly well, and “learning a whole new language” really only applies for doing more complex things than implementing user control and doing basic timed autonomous routines, so if that’s all you’ve done with RobotC so far you should be perfectly content when trying more or less any of the options available.
Not sure where you got that from…
@mikethememe You should be able to move to PROS C relatively easily, especially with the crazy amount of documentation the PROS team has put out… After that, you could probably move to PROS C++, but you don’t have to.
I’d view this as more of an opportunity than a nuisance. It’s a great way to learn another programming language and expand your knowledge.
You’re right. I was sleepy and was writing about VCS. Rereading the OP, it’s vague about if the question is VCS or V5 in general. Editing my post for clarity…
As many others have said, PROS can be used to program V5, and you have the option of PROS C and PROS C++. As far as my knowledge goes, they are phasing out RobotC along with the cortex, and this talk about RobotC++ and whatnot is actually all just the same thing. I believe that RobotC++ and the VCS version of C++ are the same thing (it wouldn’t make much sense to have two different versions based on the same language).
Regardless, if I were you, I would definitely attempt to learn as many of these as possible. The great thing about being given so many language options at this level is an amazing opportunity because you don’t get the chance to experiment as much in the work force. I highly recommend trying out as many of these new languages as you can and getting as much experience as possible. The great thing about programming languages is the more you know, the easier it gets to pick up a new one. For most people, once they understand one, learning more and more only gets easier from there.
