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
