Literally so unhelpful

I am an AP Computer Science student trying to create a robocode robot, because our teacher literally told us "this is your final teach yourself the API from online resources and then you're turning it in instead of a real test". I already know how a while loop works. The exact reason I cam was for learning how to get the results of a scan, but after skimming all the basic "how to use a while loop" stuff I see

>The game calls your onScannedRobot method whenever—during one of the actions—you see another robot. It sends along an event that can tell us lots of information about the robot—its name, how much life it has, where it is, where it's heading, how fast it's going, etc. However, since this is a simple robot, we're not going to look at any of that stuff. Let's just fire!

I came looking for "It sends along an event that can tell us lots of information about the robot—its name, how much life it has, where it is, where it's heading, how fast it's going, etc." and how to use that. I am not a java noob, I am a robocode noob. The sourceforge API thing isn't helping, it assumes A LOT of prior knowledge on the game that I don't have.

Can anyone make a tutorial for people new to robocode, but not java? Is there one I just can't seem to find? I'm so confused and I have no idea how to even get started.

Thank you!

On the front page of the wiki you will find the link to Tutorials. You'll probably be most interested in Robocode/Game Physics and Robocode/FAQ.
