FIRSTwiki The FIRST Robotics encyclopedia

Significant documentation updates

This weekend has resulted in a lot of improvements to the documentation section! Hopefully it’s a lot more informative, and has a better structure for those not yet familiar with FIRSTwiki. It’s come a long way since April, check it out!

If you have suggestions, file an issue on github or send us a pull request!

FIRSTwiki returns

After spending a few years in the depths of the internet, FIRSTwiki is back (well, sorta). I grabbed a copy of it from the wayback machine, converted it to markdown, and started creating a structure to allow us to put it back together!

Over the last few years (especially for technical topics), I’ve noticed that there are a lot of repetitive questions on ChiefDelphi asking about this thing or another, and there really needs to be a community-maintained location to store information that is readily available to FIRST teams. FIRST does a good job providing information in some areas, but they only have so many resources. FIRSTwiki aims to be a complementary resource that teams can use to either find information or pointers to information.

There’s still a LOT of work to do! In particular, you may notice that there really isn’t any content here initially, and the site design is very plain. There’s a ton of old content from the original FIRSTwiki that needs to be copied to this site – I didn’t want to directly copy it wholesale, but would rather have people curate the content and only put the interesting/relevant data here.
