The Apache Way With Kids: Using Community Over Code in the First Robotics Competition - Bob Paulin, Paulin Solutions LLC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kids need a community too! The Apache Way emerged over a decade ago from the shared experiences of thousands of developers with the desire to create a community that would build world class software. Our children are growing up in a world where there will be billions of lines of code to rewrite, maintain, and innovate on top of. The FIRST Robotics Competition is a unique competition designed around team building, bot building, and mentorship. The competition is full of not just technical challenges but community challenges. This talk will discuss some of the lessons learned implementing the Apache Way with kids. A community lives and dies by it's ability to be carried on by the next generation. We should all be committed to ensuring that these young developers not only have tools and knowledge but also the understanding of how to work in and build new communities.
