About the Presentation
Lib5k is a massive Java library written by the programming team of FRC 5024. Lib5k started three years ago when we found a need for a unified library. Since then Lib5k has been continually improved upon, and has allowed our team to excel in all aspects of programming in FRC. Over the course of this presentation we’d like to inform you of how we have improved our development through the use of our standard programming library. You’ll learn how having our own library has let us improve our code year after year, How the library has allowed us to reuse proven code, and helped our programming team keep up with the rest of the team during build season. This presentation assumes that you have an understanding of FRC programming.
