Talk:Dynamic Clustering Tutorial

From RoboWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Alright, I've written this up over the past couple days after some discussion at Category talk:Tutorials. I tried to write it with just pseudocode and a greater focus on explaining the ideas behind everything. So there are a lot of words and not much code. =) I'm still not sure if it feels enough like a "tutorial". I'd love some feedback on what's good, what's bad, what should be added / removed, or anything else... --Voidious 22:52, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

It looks like more "newbie friendly" Dynamic Clustering page, yet I like it. The only part I think is too much is the Gaussian (Kernel Density part) » Nat | Talk » 02:12, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree that it does not feel as much like a tutorial as the Wave Surfing Tutorial, where you actually build a whole bot as part of the tutorial. Maybe this should be Introduction to Dynamic Clustering (still in "Tutorials" category)? Would a hands-on tutorial that builds a DC gun and/or movement, with full source code, also be useful? Still curious for more feedback on this article... --Voidious 18:10, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Awesome tutorial! About making another one, I don't really see the need for it. This tutorial seems to cover it pretty well, and you could definitely walk yourself through making a Dynamic Clustering gun/movement with just this tutorial. Also, and kind of regarding what you said on the Category talk: Tutorials page, I think having non-code tutorials would help robocode "evolve" a lot. Pages like this make people think of their own way of doing it, while still spelling it out plainly enough that they can make it work pretty easily. Just some thoughts--CrazyBassoonist 00:06, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I like having pseudo-code tutorials like this, I hadn't really understood the concept of Dynamic Clustering before and this will definitely help. I think if you make it too specific, people will just copy/paste the code from the tutorial without completely understanding it or making their own implementation. But thanks for putting this up, as I said I'm starting to understand it now, and hopefully I'll be able to make a bot with it soon --Spinnercat 23:41, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
