I am currently learning Java. I haven't made any "good" robots yet. -- Josh S 11:37, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Most of us started without a good bot in our sleeves. My first entrance, which defeated 7 others bots at work in melee, ended up on spot 285 out of 300. And see where I stand today. Just set your personal goal within reach and build up from there. Defeating (most of) the samplebots is a good start. Happy robocoding! --GrubbmGait 17:57, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Well, that's encouraging! I hope I can start to get a grip on things sometime in the future.. ---- Josh S 11:33, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Finally got my WallAvoiderBot working. =) The angle adjusting part was testing for only heading 0...

double angle = 0;
while (!field.contains(wallStickEnd = 
				project(myLocation, angle, WALL_STICK))) {
	angle += .1 * direction;

I was very frustrated about this, but I finally figured it out.. I replaced the angle argument with getHeadingRadians() + angle. --- Josh S 11:33, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
