Welcome to the openFIRST Portal Development Website!
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
contributions from a wide variety of teams from Brasil, Canada and the
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
openFIRST Contributor's HOWTO. New contributors are always welcome.
USFIRST is the largest North American robotics competition that has
over 800 teams and many competitions yearly. Read

By popular request, we have enstated a nightly build system.
This allows those who do not have CVS clients access to the latest
and greatest openFIRST code. Things in the Nightly Builds may not
work as expected, and may not even work at all, but it's the easiest
way to keep up with development, and be on the leading edge of
openFIRST. Also, there is a nightly build available with
all openFIRST packages.
See below the table for a compatibility notice (applies to users currently using versions of openFIRST written prior to, or during. August, 2003).
Compatibility Notice: All nightly builds
starting in 2005 are not backwards compatible with any
build from 2004 or before.
