Event Results and API Data Update
Blog Date: Monday, March 2, 2015 - 15:13
I wanted to give everyone an update on our event results and API data challenges. The good news is that all data from every Week 1 event has been retained, so we have all we need to fully populate the event results information pages and calculate district ranking. If you check the results pages now, you will see partial information has already been populated. We’ve also made available additional processing resources to help us deal with the loads we are experiencing during events.
This afternoon we will begin verifying the information we intend to post for the District points system and triggering the rest of the updates necessary to fully populate the rest of the event results pages. We expect all event information and District points will be available by Noon on Wednesday.
Again, we apologize for this. We may still have to make additional tweaks following Week 2 events, but we are expecting greatly improved system performance.
(I figured I’d get this one since Hallry already got one for today.
Well, this is certainly good news! FIRST did a great thing for the community by releasing an API for event data, and even though there are some bugs here in the beginning, it should help us all tremendously in the long run!
