Let's Program a Robot War

by Peter Cooper

In a follow up to a session run at Tech Nottingham's predecessor, Peter Cooper is back to take a quick look at the long history of robot-based programming games, how they've evolved, and how you can play with them yourself.

Then we get you into teams, coding robots for yourselves for entry into a full-scale bot-on-bot tournament amongst attendees. Can your team fend off all on-comers to be crowned Tech Nottingham's robot programming champion?

The best bot builders win a Raspberry Pi - we have four up for grabs!
