Go to Post Go with a Big Block. The torque is awesome and you cant beat the sound of a built Big Block with a high lift cam and some open headers. A blower would be a nice addition as well. Good luck getting past the inspector. - GBK [more]

The FIRST Alliance - A whole new way to play

Hello, some of you may have seen the post yesterday teasing at a new way of doing things at events, keeping updated with events, and watching a teams progression.

What we made was not only a nice website for anybody to be able to track an event live as its happening, but also a foundation for everybody in the FIRST community to build on. Our website not only houses an extensive database containing all of 2012 and all future seasons' data, but it also houses a public API for anybody to use and expand upon to develop their own websites/desktop application/mobile applications, etc.

There are many new features planned down the road, and many a bug fix as well, but all input from you is what will really make this website shine.

As of now, the website is definitely in an alpha/beta state and we will be continuing to update as per the community's requests. Please submit any and all feedback to contact@thefirstalliance.org

And.... Without further ado, we present to you
www.thefirstalliance.org

Thanks! We've got a ton of other features planned down the road. We'll share the roadmap with you guys a little later. As of now, the site is just a sweet wrapper for what our public api can do.

Can't wait to show you guys what's next. So excited!

Thanks alot! We're really excited to be bringing a gorgeous and professional webapp to FRC teams/members. Honestly, some of the other services out there have seriously neglected usability. It's sad...

As we move forward, we're going to make this thing a heck of a lot prettier too! The next major release we're going to be pushing the boundaries of what you can do with web interfaces.

Thanks again man!

You guys planning on hosting match videos to be accessible through your api as well?

That's something we've talked about, but honestly they'll have to be user submitted. Videos aren't a priority right now, as we're going to focus on some other really exciting stuff.

Re: The FIRST Alliance - A whole new way to play

Looks awesome guys. Any plans on short URLs ala frclinks?

Also, posible bug report: Looks like the W/L/T column is only colored in the first row on team pages.

Cool site. Data for some events seem to be missing?

Re: The FIRST Alliance - A whole new way to play

I have to agree with everyone else, this is a fantastic tool. Thank you so much. I have a couple of comments after a brief look.

1) I may have missed it, but is there a way to access data from past years? If not currently, will this be added later?

2) Currently on the elimination pages, it lists the alliances ranks as 0-7 instead of 1-8 when listing them in the upper left. Not a big deal, just something I noticed.

Again, great job with this, and I look forward to seeing how it progresses from here!

Thanks for the feedback. Our database has records from previous years, but we're still building the api to accommodate that. That's one of the features I can tell you will be released shortly.

Someone else just sent me an email about the elims. Thanks so much guys!
