Welcome To Python
All robots in this competition are programmed in Python 2.7.
There are a number of tutorials out there which might help you to learn to program in Python:
- Our tutorial, called Python: A whirlwind tour. This was written especially for HR Robocon competitors, and explains the basics while trying not to overwhelm you.
- The Official Tutorial – the good stuff starts at chapter 3, but you should at least skim the stuff before it; there is a lot there and it may be a little overwhelming.
- A number of tutorials for beginners are linked to from here. Byte of Python seems like a good one.
- A number of tutorials for people that have programmed before are linked to from here.Dive Into Python is a good book for people that have programmed before, but it is a fairly long read.
