Welcome

I'm Nik; a University student from the Saint Francis, Wisconsin area. I've slowly discovered sharing information makes our world a better place - I know talking with other people, sharing ideas, and then publishing them, has always helped me explore new territory. So, I've decided to share some of the items I've learned so far in programming and robotics, with anyone else who wants it.

 
Typically, other Middle, High School, or College Robotics students participating in FIRST's FTC competitions like to share programming ideas at Tournaments, Scrimmages and Qualifiers. So, here on my website I open that process up, on my Robotics page.

 

Learning is self rewarding, and teaching, even more so. I believe these are two of humanities best practices.

 

Thanks for visiting my site with all it's links and coding for comparative educational purposes. I'm open to discussion on/off topic by email at: Nikolaus Zen Prusinski. Areas of interest include Programming with Xcode (Swift), Aviation, Sailing, Music and Astrophysics.

Music

When I get the chance I love to play classical music, I play the Trumpet, French Horn and the Piano, surely at home, but especially at Discovery World on Milwaukee's Lake front, up in the Pilot House. The view's great and the sound of a real baby grand piano . . . well if you ever get the chance - visit Discovery World in Milwaukee, it's a fun place for more than it's great views of Lake Michigan. Here's a link to our last concert.

Robotics

FTC season 2013-2014, I worked with Ryan (right) at the Madison FTC Scrimmage where Zen-42 (6914-B) performed very well with Ryan driving to a 213 point high score, including a double chin-up hang. Combined, Ryan's driving and my  autonomous programming (RobotC) placed our team in the top third overall out of eight scrimmages with other teams. Google® sponsored the event, thank you! But that doesn't mean we support their corporate behavior or information sales.
