We hope you’ve had a nice beginning of the year!
It took us a bit but we are excited to announce that we will host the second (now annual) RoboCup Junior Soccer Simulation Competition.

Check it out and let us know what you think!
We now have two fully fledged documentation articles that can help you get
started programming your robots:
If you feel like there is something missing in the documentation, do not
hesitate to suggest a change – Pull Requests are very much welcome!
