Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

Would be great if you could share the formula you used in the spreadsheet :)

comment Raw RGB data to Color?
@Nick2253 - I think this would be off topic at Code Review: They explicitly don't want questions about "Troubleshooting, debugging, or understanding code snippets." - they go on to require that code samples in questions "work as intended" (but need improvement). It's more on-topic at StackOverflow (I have some code and it doesn't work), but we should be able to answer this here ;)

Also, note that HSV and HSL are not quite the same, and instead of calculating V (as var_Max) you should calculate L (as 0.5(var_Max + var_Min))

While I think Thaddeus Hughes has the answer it might help if you could also post some sample inputs and outputs (i.e. "for R255, G128, B0 I'm getting H0, S0, V0", etc.) - are you getting an HSV of 0? or some wildly different values

comment Bluetooth communication between computer and nxt using RobotC
Are there any other steps to this? Ideally we're looking for substantial answers that provide a bit of detail - possibly mention libraries or API calls?

comment What are the largest Technic-compatible tires on the market?
While not as big as the ones in the accepted answer, these may be more available due to the larger number of sets they appeared in.

Hi Emily, which phone are you using?

comment How can I rotate an EV3 motor an exact number of degrees using RobotC?
Also - can you post an example of what you have tried - RobotC should support sending specific angles to servos assuming you've configured them correctly...

Is this a duplicate of your previous question - or have you switched from NXC to RobotC? Are you using the interactive servo motors or the medium/large servo motors?
