    APP Programming

  • 2022-2023 APP for "Spin Up" game

    With his knowledge in Java, python and C++, Paul has recently created a scoring app that was used for the endgame in this year’s VEX Spin Up. The VEX Spin Up game allows teams to throw out multiple strings during the endgame period to receive higher scores. To optimize the calculation in solving how many foam tiles the strings should cover, Paul developed this scoring app that precisely let teams know their individual scores per the component of the game and their final total score, allowing teams to decide their next moves in the following matches.
