What is openFIRST?
The openFIRST Portal System is an integrated set of modules which may be
used together to create or enhance a web site. It is directed towards
teams participating in the FIRST robotics competition. The openFIRST
Portal System is a completely student-developed project that has had

openFIRST is developed by a number of students from the FIRST Robotics
competition teams #1006, #1049, #781,
#1227, and #1257. You may read more about the developers here. To learn how to contribute to the project, and for a technical reference about writing modifications / patches / enhancements for the openFIRST system, read the
