I would recommend watching some tournament series, the first one from 2012 is pretty great even just as a tutorial to optimization:

There is also one going on on these forums right now, you should try out some of the puzzles and then see how other have done stuff once the results are in. The first puzzle is still going on for the weekend.

Now past all that your puzzle. Here is a quick and dirty 165-1-30 solution, going for speed only:

This does use a bunch of fancier stuff(a single line loop, garbage ball etc.) but hopefully is still readable enough.

You can also optimize for symbols, such as my 357/1/15 solution:

The only thing you might not yet recognize is what the red waldo is doing. Every turn, it hits Bond+. The blue Bond- commands still debond, because red tries to bond, fails, then blue successfully debonds.
