Congratulations to first year computing students, James Boland and Andrew Butler who made it to the semi-finals of the 2010 National Robocode finals at the Tipperary Institute on March 11th.
Robocode is a programming competition testing coding skills through Java. James and Andrew secured 4th place among strong competition from Universities and Institutes of Technology all over the country. Their 'Chameleon' bot used fast offensive strategy as well as a facility to continuously change appearance based on the field conditions, all adding a nice flavour to the day.
